Description Jan Hutař 2007-11-20 19:40:52 UTC
Description of problem:
I'm not able to add virtual bridged network card. Traceback pops up.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
virt-manager-0.5.2-2.fc8
libvirt-0.3.3-2.fc8


How reproducible:
always


Steps to Reproduce:
1. # brctl addbr br0
2. # brctl addif br0 eth0
3. Details > Add network card > Shared physical device > select only one 
possible there


Actual results:
GUI shows traceback, this traceback is also on the command line, virt-manager 
starts to generate also this "libvir: QEMU chyba : TAP bridge path 'eth0 
(Bridge br0)' is too long" on the command line.


Expected results:
Virtual card is created


Additional info:

Traceback in the GUI:

Unable to complete install '<class 'libvirt.libvirtError'> virDomainDefineXML() 
failed TAP bridge path 'eth0 (Bridge br0)' is too long
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/addhardware.py", line 530, in

Traceback in the command line:

libvir: QEMU chyba : TAP bridge path 'eth0 (Bridge br0)' is too long
libvir: QEMU chyba : TAP bridge path 'eth0 (Bridge br0)' is too long

I'm not sure that this is not my fault (bad bridge set-up), but I think virt-
manager should provide some error message instead of the traceback.

Comment 1 Daniel Berrangé 2008-01-11 05:28:47 UTC
This was a bug in virt-manager - it was getting the drop down list label vs
bridge device name mixed up :-( Will be fixed in next update


Comment 2 Fedora Update System 2008-01-11 22:23:43 UTC
virt-manager-0.5.3-1.fc8 has been pushed to the Fedora 8 testing repository.  If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
 If you want to test the update, you can install it with 
 su -c 'yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update virt-manager'

Comment 3 Fedora Update System 2008-01-22 15:52:25 UTC
virt-manager-0.5.3-1.fc8 has been pushed to the Fedora 8 stable repository.  If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.

Comment 4 Cole Robinson 2008-01-30 16:03:15 UTC
Unfortunately this bug existed in two places, and we only fixed the one for
creating a guest. This one applies to the addhardware wizard. Reopening.

Comment 6 Bug Zapper 2008-11-26 08:37:27 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 8.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '8'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 8's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here:

Comment 7 Cole Robinson 2008-11-26 15:30:47 UTC
This won't be fixed for F8, but is already fixed in F9, so closing as CURRENTRELEASE.
