Hi Rich

One more quiry.
After installing libguestfs-test-tool on my powerpc ubuntu,I'm getting this following error on my system ...

UnsupportedRpcVersion: Specified RPC version, 3.23, not supported by this endpoint.

Can you help regarding this?

This is actually a bug in supermin.  However I think it is fixed in
recent supermin.

Have a look at the patt_of_cpu function here:


This was added by Hilko's patch:


and I suspect you will need to include this patch in your version of
supermin.  You'll have to also look at the contents of /boot.

Note also that you don't need to install the supermin package in order
to use it, if you follow the instructions here:
