Fedora 26 is out, virt-builder images available

Fedora 26 is released today. virt-builder images are already available for almost all architectures:

$ virt-builder -l | grep fedora-26
fedora-26                aarch64    Fedora® 26 Server (aarch64)
fedora-26                armv7l     Fedora® 26 Server (armv7l)
fedora-26                i686       Fedora® 26 Server (i686)
fedora-26                ppc64      Fedora® 26 Server (ppc64)
fedora-26                ppc64le    Fedora® 26 Server (ppc64le)
fedora-26                x86_64     Fedora® 26 Server

For example:

$ virt-builder fedora-26
$ qemu-system-x86_64 -machine accel=kvm:tcg -cpu host -m 2048 \
    -drive file=fedora-26.img,format=raw,if=virtio

Why not s390x? That’s because qemu doesn’t yet emulate enough of the s390x instruction set / architecture so that we can run Fedora under TCG emulation.
