Re: [libvirt] Cannot enumerate physical devices with libvirt 0.7.6

log at debug level in /var/log/libvirt/libvirt.log).

Daniel was referring to the libvirt udev driver--the libvirt code that interacts with udev--not to udev itself, which is what you're testing with udevadm. In any of your logs when you have libvirt debug logging turned on, do you see the message:

Registering udev node device backend

By the way, I noticed that libvirt generates tons of "error :
qemuMonitorTextGetBlockStatsInfo:698 : invalid argument in no stats
found for device virtio-diskX" while virt-manager is running (it
stops as soon as I stop virt-manager). Is it linked with the bug I
saw on the list about libvirt taking over memory after time isn't

These messages are the result of not being able to find the device, which is consistent with the other things you're seeing. These are all symptoms of the node device code not running.

Have you any other Idea?

Hi all,

I often update my F12 box with the rawvirt repository, which
installed libvirt 0.7.6. Since that, I cannot enumerate physical
devices (and thus get a beautiful error when I start one of my vms
that should use a USB device).

I don't think I changed anything else on that box, and, of
course, I
already restarted the libvirt daemon.
I haven't restarted the server itself, because it is currently
but I could do it if necessary...

I make good use of the qemu hypervisor, and I'm looking forward
solve this issue!


# libvirtd --version libvirtd (libvirt) 0.7.6

# virsh --version 0.7.6

# virsh nodedev-list error :Failed to count node devices error
:this function is not supported by the hypervisor:

It would appear that the udev driver failed to start - there are
probably messages in syslog about the problem
