Description James Antill 2006-04-06 13:41:35 EDT
Description of problem:
Fedora doesn't put /sbin and /usr/sbin into a non-root path, so if a user does
sudo /usr/sbin/xm top you get a python traceback (a simple command not found
error message, would also be much nicer).

Comment 2 Richard W.M. Jones 2008-01-17 12:49:55 EST
We should encourage people to use the virt-top command (which is in
Fedora since F8) instead of xm top.  The reason is that virt-top is
more powerful and supports multiple hypervisors through libvirt.
