Install the following:

  • ansible
  • qemu
  • genisoimage
  • ovmf (find the location of OVMF\_CODE.fd, it is system dependent)

Before doing anything else, edit the vars in hosts to your system's needs. For qemu installation specifically, you need to provide the location of your OVMF_CODE.fd file.

To begin the setup process, in this folder, run:

$ ansible-playbook -K install.yml

To view the vm, you also need a vnc viewer. TigerVNC is a good choice.

Simply run

$ vncviewer :5900

Currently, this is a bug with the installation process that causes the vm to not terminate after completing the base install, causing the ansible task to hang. You can manually terminate ansible once the vm shows:

installation complete

Once the base installation is complete, we need to configure the system in a postinstall step, start by running the vm with:

$ ansible-playbook run.yml

And then run the postinstall playbook:

$ ansible-playbook postinstall.yml

The mirror dev environment is now ready to use. All future vm startups can be done with:

$ ansible-playbook run.yml
