comment Virtualization on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
Well, the post shows that there is activity for KVM snapshots on Linux. But I am wondering how well it works in practice and how well it is supported by UI tools. E.g., does virt-manager support managing snapshots (what about live snapshots?) and is it fast (or does it copy the whole hard drive)?

According to e.g. this post, snapshots and hot backup are planned/implemented. But are they available from simple GUI tools, like virt-manager?

@bntser, thanks for your answer and sharing your experience. I guess the only thing that VirtualBox cannot do is hot backup, right? I.e., we need to stop the VM to take a backup/snapshot.

Oh, @JavierRivera, I was not entirely clear on this: hypervisor can be Type 1 or Type 2 (like VirtualBox). For clarity, I will remove the word 'hypervisor' from the question.

comment Kernel Panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)
I have added sudo mount --bind /dev/pts /mnt/dev/pts and sudo mount --bind /sys /mnt/sys in my edit; without this, update-grub2 complained.
