Taking the plunge and adding a ppa for QEMU 2.1 and its cohorts…

Because I’m basically a pretty lazy admin (and the repository looks really attractive), I’m going to go ahead and add the following to my /etc/apt/sources.list on my notebook for further testing with a Windows guest.

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/jacob/virtualisation/ubuntu trusty main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/jacob/virtualisation/ubuntu trusty main

This is the one I mentioned in an earlier post. It is maintained by Jacob Zimmermann who appears to know what he’s doing. Which definitely puts him well ahead of me…

This looks like what I will be getting with this…
