DNS for your Vagrant needs: with Landrush, libvirt and dnsmasq

Have you ever needed a DNS server that would be visible both on your host and your Vagrant guests? Landrush is one of those things that can pretty much save you. Unfortunately it was designed around VirtualBox and Mac OS, so it does not work on Linux out-of-the-box. And it does not work with libvirt provider at all. Until of course recently since I added the support there. Here is how to make all that work together on Fedora. Continue reading

Running Vagrant with Docker provider without password prompts on Fedora

When you run Vagrant with Docker provider you find out that you need to prepend every command with sudo since that’s what would you do with running Docker commands directly. But chances are you don’t want to do that. In that case it’s enough to make calls to Docker commands password-less. Vagrant would then be able to use Docker without password prompts as well. To do so you just need add yourself to docker group. Here is how to do it on Fedora 22. Continue reading

Inception: running Vagrant inside Vagrant with KVM

Since I package and maintain Vagrant and vagrant-libvirt for Fedora, I have a need to test new builds. But since I run just one version of Fedora and I don’t really feel like testing it directly on my host system, I actually use Vagrant to test Vagrant. In other words I run Vagrant with KVM and inside I download the new builds and run Vagrant with KVM again. This is possible because KVM supports nested virtualization. In fact I already wrote about setting that up with virt-manager. But today I show you how to do it using Vagrant itself. Continue reading
