Re: [libvirt] Libvir on Hardy: file a bug or not?



Quoting "Mihamina Rakotomandimby (R12y)" <mihamina rakotomandimby etu univ-orleans fr>:

I cannot help you with your problem but in case you want to try the latest and greatest libvirt, there are 0.4.4 packages available in my PPA: http://launchpad.net/~pgquiles/+archive (UNOFFICIAL AND UNSUPPORTED)

Hi,
I am using Ubuntu Hardy up to date.

When defining a domain with:
<domain type='kvm' id='1'>
  <name>xp</name>
  <uuid>dd4618e5-1c48-a481-0671-d75f38f59037</uuid>
  <memory>524288</memory>
  <currentMemory>524288</currentMemory>
  <vcpu>1</vcpu>
  <os>
    <type arch='x86_64' machine='pc'>hvm</type>
    <boot dev='hd'/>
  </os>
  <clock offset='localtime'/>
  <on_poweroff>destroy</on_poweroff>
  <on_reboot>destroy</on_reboot>
  <on_crash>destroy</on_crash>
  <devices>
    <emulator>/usr/bin/qemu-system-x86_64</emulator>
    <disk type='file' device='cdrom'>
      <source file='/home/mihamina/xpjohnny.iso'/>
      <target dev='hdc' bus='ide'/>
      <readonly/>
    </disk>
    <disk type='file' device='disk'>
      <source file='/home/mihamina/xp.img'/>
      <target dev='hda' bus='ide'/>
    </disk>
    <interface type='bridge'>
      <mac address='00:16:3e:1e:b2:22'/>
      <source bridge='br0'/>
      <target dev='vnet1'/>
    </interface>
    <input type='tablet' bus='usb'/>
    <input type='mouse' bus='ps2'/>
    <graphics type='vnc' port='5900' listen='127.0.0.1'/>
  </devices>
</domain>

I get:

 virsh # start xp
 libvir: QEMU error : QEMU quit during console startup
 qemu: unknowm parameter 'boot' in
'file=/home/mihamina/xp.img,if=ide,boot=on'
 error: Failed to start domain xp

If I change the domain type with "qemu", I have no error (and the
virtual machine starts without any problem.

This is my installed things:

$ dpkg -l | awk '/(virt|qemu|kvm)/{print $2,$3}'
kvm 1:62+dfsg-0ubuntu8
libvirt-bin 0.4.0-2ubuntu8
libvirt0 0.4.0-2ubuntu8
python-libvirt 0.4.0-2ubuntu8
python-virtinst 0.300.2-0ubuntu6
python-virtkey 0.50ubuntu0.1
qemu 0.9.1-1ubuntu1
virt-manager 0.5.3-0ubuntu10
virt-viewer 0.0.2-1ubuntu1

Is it an upstream bug or a distribution bug?
Who is supposed to be noticed? The packager or the upstream (where please)?
