Fedora 11 Update: qemu-0.10.5-2.fc11



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2009-6397
2009-06-15 22:07:14
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : qemu
Product     : Fedora 11
Version     : 0.10.5
Release     : 2.fc11
URL         : http://www.qemu.org/
Summary     : QEMU is a FAST! processor emulator
Description :
QEMU is a generic and open source processor emulator which achieves a good
emulation speed by using dynamic translation. QEMU has two operating modes:

 * Full system emulation. In this mode, QEMU emulates a full system (for
   example a PC), including a processor and various peripherials. It can be
   used to launch different Operating Systems without rebooting the PC or
   to debug system code.
 * User mode emulation. In this mode, QEMU can launch Linux processes compiled
   for one CPU on another CPU.

As QEMU requires no host kernel patches to run, it is safe and easy to use.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

This package updates qemu to the latest stable release from upstream qemu-kvm,
version 0.10.5.    The update fixes the bugs listed below, the most significant
of which is probably the bug which causes F11 anaconda cdrom installs to
hang/crash towards the end of the install.    Another notable change in this
version of qemu-kvm is the introduction of "CPUID trimming". This means that KVM
will no longer expose CPU features to the guest when the host does not support
these features. For example, this should fix problems with booting guests on
host machines which lack NX support.    The upstream changelog also lists the
following changes:    - merge qemu-0.10.5     - kvm: trim unsupported cpu
features from cpuid     - kvm: provide a better error message for -smp > 1     -
Remove initrd printfs     - Initial variables found by valgrind     - Fix
-initrd with > 4GB guests     - Fix busy loop on live migration for certain
platforms     - Remove GCC 3.x requirements from docs     - ETRAX: fixes for
kernel command line, ethernet address, bmi     - CRIS: Fix bmi     - Fix bounce
buffer errors     - Fix regression in -kernel  - fix large guest migration
(Glauber Costa)  - fix -no-shutdown (Daniel Gollub)  - fix testsuite build
(Jochen Roth)  - fix hard disk count reported by BIOS for extboot (Gleb Natapov)
- fix large page alignment (Marcelo Tosatti)  - fix tap not resetting correctly
- propagate errors on failed migration (Glauber Costa)  - fix unregistering
large memory slots  - drop packet from tap device if all NICs are down    (Mark
McLoughlin)  - increment virtio-net savevm version (Anthony Liguori)  - fix
build to separate object directoy (Anthony Liguori)  - fix virtio-net savevm
dependency on build options    (Alex Williamson)  - refuse migration if host
does not support vnet header and     guest needs it (Alex Williamson)
