Rapido: quick kernel testing from source

David Disseldorp

Test kernel changes in a matter of seconds using Rapido - a glorified wrapper for Dracut and QEMU.

This talk will walk through the process of taking a kernel source repository and turning it into a testable VM.
For those who would like to play along on their own machine, please bring:
- a laptop with openSUSE Leap or Tumbleweed installed
- Kernel source (mainline master)
- Rapido source

After covering a simple standalone test procedure, the walk-through will then move on to kernel testing alongside network accessible storage such as iSCSI, and also touch on some debugging techniques.
