PITA::Test::Image::Qemu - A tiny Qemu test image that only boots and pings


This distribution contains a small Qemu image intended for snapshot-mode testing of the PITA::Guest::Driver::Qemu module.

Primarily, it is intended for testing the launch-shutdown cycle, and not for testing discovery or package testing.

It verifies that the driver is using the qemu binary properly.



The static filename method returns the location of the expanded testing image, verified to exist. The file will be available only with read permissions, and without the ability to write.


Bugs should be reported via the CPAN bug tracker at

For other issues, contact the author.
