Comment 10 for bug 917135

Hi,

I have success also with the -generic kernel image, but the -virtual kernel packages do not seem to include the hv_ drivers.

Tested with linux-image-virtual 3.2.0.17.17

# dpkg -l | grep linux-image-virtual
ii linux-image-virtual 3.2.0.17.17 Linux kernel image for virtual machines

# zcat /boot/initrd.img-3.2.0-17-virtual | cpio -it | grep hv_
lib/modules/3.2.0-17-virtual/kernel/drivers/hv/hv_utils.ko
lib/modules/3.2.0-17-virtual/kernel/drivers/hv/hv_vmbus.ko
25562 blocks

Rebooted with the -generic kernel:

# dpkg -l | grep linux-image-generic
ii linux-image-generic 3.2.0.17.17 Generic Linux kernel image

# zcat /boot/initrd.img-3.2.0-17-generic | cpio -it | grep hv_
lib/modules/3.2.0-17-generic/kernel/drivers/hv/hv_utils.ko
lib/modules/3.2.0-17-generic/kernel/drivers/hv/hv_vmbus.ko
lib/modules/3.2.0-17-generic/kernel/drivers/net/hyperv/hv_netvsc.ko
lib/modules/3.2.0-17-generic/kernel/drivers/scsi/hv_storvsc.ko

Could the -virtual kernel packages get the same Hyper-V support?

Thanks,
