Description Eduardo Habkost 2007-10-23 11:44:22 EDT
Description of problem:

virt-install --nographics --paravirt is broken, currently, on Fedora 7 and 
Rawhide.

As reported by Markus Armbruster:

"Dan pointed me to the fact that virt-install --nographics --paravirt
doesn't work in F-7 and Rawhide.  I checked, and found that we lost
our hack to make sure console output goes somewhere sane when PVFB is
off.  The appended patch applies both to kernel-xen-2.6/F-7 and devel.
I built a devel kernel, and it fixes virt-install."


The patch is attached to this bug report.



Steps to Reproduce:
virt-install --nographics --paravirt --file /var/lib/xen/images/text.img --file-size 
5 --name text --ram 500 --location nfs:<path to Fedora 
mirror>/redhat/released/F-7/GOLD/Fedora/x86_64/os
  
Actual results:
install kernel boots, prints a few messages, then i/o stops


Expected results:
proceeds to text install
