[libvirt] RE: Re: kvm-81: save / restore does not work - missing incoming stdio feature



Hi Daniel,

Charles Duffy (thanks Charles !) told me how to fix libvirt for using
the
new "-incoming" API - yust replace "stdio" with "exec:cat" ..

Works like a charm,  tested with FC9, libvirt.0.5.1-2 and KVM-83

Here's the patch for libvirt:

diff -uNr libvirt-0.5.1/src/qemu_driver.c
libvirt-0.5.1-migrate-exec-patch/src/qemu_driver.c
--- libvirt-0.5.1/src/qemu_driver.c     2009-01-18 11:07:57.000000000

+++ libvirt-0.5.1-migrate-exec-patch/src/qemu_driver.c  2009-01-18
