Binary package hint: virt-manager

The "OS Variant" -list of the client creation dialog does not have (an entry/) entries for Ubuntu. I think it should.

Sorry, reopening this. Soren, could you ellaborate a bit on why there are not entries for other Ubuntu versions ? Either way, why would this matter ?

Fabian, currently previous versions of ubuntu require a bit of massaging before sucessfully booting in kvm and we would not like to be misleading in Virt-Manager and thus generate deception. Previous version will run fine under the Ubuntu Hardy selection, but you need to apply first a workaround on the isos as described on the wiki:
