I'm really curious how you were able to virtualize CentOS 8.

What platform are you using? Xen, KVM or VMWare? PV or HVM?

I started a thread here and was referred to a project page for development. There was a thread on the forums for this which I replied to but it's been dead too so when I saw your opening sentence I'm really interested in, how'd you do it?

Thank you,

    Hi all,
    I've several questions about C8. I'm using 8 on my personal NAS and 
    works very well. I'm running several VMs with centos 8 and noticed 
    1) Why corosync, pacemaker and pcs are missing on C8? They are only 
    available on rhel with payments( rhel ha addons)?
    2) Why there is only Gnome as available DE? I use centos on my 
    workstation and I'm a kde-plasma user. XFCE is ok but not gnome. I tried 
    fedora, it has all software that I need and it is a very good distro but 
    I don't like too much update and its EOL (upgrade/reinstall every 13 
    months on a workstation is not so good for me). I don't want to be 
    forced to install another stable distro like debian (This not means that 
    debian is bad but I prefer centos).
    3) I have a VM with C8 installed. I got several updates but I don't 
    receive any update for 8 on centos-announce like for previous versions 
    (6 & 7). Something has changed?
    4) EPEL. I know that EPEL is a Fedora SIG but I use several packages 
    from EPEL. There is a place to see what packages will be included in 
    EPEL? For example, I tried to install audacious from epel but got errors 
    for missing deps. Seems that EPEL8 is released but not ready. There is a 
    ETA for this?
    5) It's my impression or there are less packages in this release?
    6) Why cockpit installed by default?
    7) Why repo PowerTools was created? What is the main purpose?
    8) Why NetworkManager is the default method to configure interfaces? I 
    know that I can install network-scripts but I don't understand this change.
    Best regards, Alessandro.
