Packer: Keystroke intervale and vagrant+libvirt

Controlling the keystroke delay during packer’s VNC execution

This is very useful if you are on a fast machine. I use the following on my Core-i7 4770:

PACKER_KEY_INTERVAL=10ms packer <rest-of-packer-params>

Vagrant + libvirt = <3

Assuming you are running on a host that has KVM installed and working, you can do:

vagrant plugin install vagrant-libvirt

Because most vagrant images come with VirtualBox support, do check out Chef’s Bento project!
