Phyllome OS

Virtualization for the rest of us

What ?

  • This repository contains the basic building blocks required for deploying Phyllome OS bare-metal or in a virtual machine using kickstart files.


For development purposes, Phyllome OS can be deployed in a virtual machine, leveraging nested-virtualization.


  • A x86_64 platform that supports hardware-assisted virtualization
  • A recent Linux Kernel (5.X)
  • The virt-install and virt-manager tools
  • libvirt and qemu-kvmup and running
  • Nested-virtualization enabled


Enable nested-virtualization :

  • For AMD-based systems

to be done

  • For Intel-based systems

to be done

  • For Fedora 34

Install the prerequisites :

sudo dnf install -y qemu-kvm libvirt libvirt-daemon-config-network libvirt-daemon-kvm virt-install virt-top virt-manager libguestfs-tools python3-libguestfs guestfs-tools

  • For Ubuntu 20.4 or Debian 11

To be done


Note : the following scripts relies on a kickstart tuned for Intel CPU and GPU, but may nonetheless on other systems.

This script will automatically deploy the alpha version of Phyllome OS, on a Q35 virtual motherboard, a UEFI-based firmware, virtio-devices accross the board, 2 vCPUs, 4 GB of RAM and a disk of 5 GB.

Adjust it according to your need. When ready, copy and paste it to your terminal and fire-up it up!

    --connect qemu:///system \
    --virt-type kvm \
