there is also the following problem: At the moment our "New VM" wizard
just asks if the Linux distribution is Debian/Ubuntu/Fedora or whatever.
It does not ask if this is an older distro or a newer one. Therefore we
need to assume some sane values working for older as well as for newer
distros. We want to rewrite that wizard to allow a better choice here
but this will not happen for 5.1.
