Re: [libvirt] [fedora-virt] qemu 1.1.0 in Rawhide, and planned backport to F17 (was: Re: Upgrading qemu to 1.1 in rawhide)

[On the topic of qemu 1.1.0 in Fedora 17]

I'm seeing some very peculiar problems with virt-install that might be
due to libvirt.  Is libvirt in F17 too old for qemu 1.1.0?


(1) Just installing qemu-system-x86 isn't enough for libvirt to
recognize any hypervisors:

ERROR    Host does not support any virtualization options 

virsh capabilities doesn't show any <guest> section at all.  Of course
qemu-kvm *is* installed and working.

Solution: install the qemu meta-package.  Unfortunately that means I
have to have qemu-system-{cris,sh4,arm,mips} which I didn't want.

(2) If I use virt-install --cpu=host, I get:

ERROR    unsupported configuration: CPU specification not supported by hypervisor

Solution was to not use this option.

(3) Now virt-install says:

ERROR    internal error process exited while connecting to monitor: char device redirected to /dev/pts/19
Error: Cirrus VGA not available

Solution was to use --graphics=spice.

(4) Now virt-install says:

ERROR    internal error process exited while connecting to monitor: char device redirected to /dev/pts/19
do_spice_init: starting 0.10.1
spice_server_add_interface: SPICE_INTERFACE_MIGRATION
spice_server_add_interface: SPICE_INTERFACE_KEYBOARD
spice_server_add_interface: SPICE_INTERFACE_MOUSE
Kernel image must be specified

The error here is "Kernel image must be specified".

By this point it was getting very strange, so I decided to look
at the libvirt log files for the qemu command line ...

Yikes.  ???? qemu-system-arm ????


The version of libvirt is libvirt-, and this is
a mostly up to date F17 system, except that I've installed qemu-kvm
1.1.0 + ceph from Rawhide.

Suggestions welcome.

virt-top is 'top' for virtual machines.  Tiny program with many
powerful monitoring features, net stats, disk stats, logging, etc.
