After the virtio-win 0.1.196 update, note these two changes:

  • ISO image is copied at /var/lib/libvirt/images

  • The Windows XP floppies are not distributed anymore as upstream remove the support

0.1.225.1-1 seems to not install on Win11 VM, not sure if I'm allowed to post issues like this?

Downgraded back to 0.1.221.1-1 and it installed without any issues

Is there a reason the .install file is included when it doesn't do any action? I think it can be removed, along with the commented install= line in the PKGBUILD

virt-v2v expects virtio-win drivers (the iso is prefered) to be in /usr/share/virtio-win

The package could install a symlink towards the iso, there too ?

Note: I just created virt-v2v package and would like to include virtio-win as optdepends

@SamLukeYes I am aware that it's not included in upstream anymore, but i my opinion, you should download XP floppies from the last version where it was still available (0.1.190).

@softwarerat It is upstream that doesn't distribute XP floppies any more. If you want those floppies, you can simply download them from the release archive.

softwarerat commented on 2021-09-21 17:22 (UTC)

Please add Windows XP floppies again

@thisischrys Do you know this is voluntary work that is based on collaboration from others? Instead of being rude, could you be more helpful by providing which Windows versions are supported?

thisischrys commented on 2021-08-28 18:39 (UTC)

Older windows versions are not supported, please adjust Description accordingly to avoid wasting people's time.

Is this supposed to be the stable or the latest? version does not match either.
