Description Thomas DuBuisson 2008-03-12 18:33:00 EDT
Description of problem: It is not possible to install Rawhide as a guest OS (Xen DomU) using virt-install. At the very least, rawhide is missing the 'fedora.css' in its os tree. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Consistent Steps to Reproduce: 1. sudo virt-install -n test -r 512 --vcpus=1 -f /var/lib/xen/images/RH.img --vnc -p -b virbr0 -l "http://mirrors.kernel.org/fedora/development/i386/os/" Alternatively, you can use virt-manger if you like a GUI. Actual results: $ sudo virt-install -n test -r 512 --vcpus=1 -f /var/lib/xen/images/RH.img --vnc -p -b virbr0 -l "http://mirrors.kernel.org/fedora/development/i386/os/" How large would you like the disk (/var/lib/xen/images/RH.img) to be (in gigabytes)? 8 Starting install... libvir: Xen Daemon error : GET operation failed: [... a long time delay here as it tries to find out what type of distro this mirror serves ...] Could not find an installable distribution at: http://mirrors.kernel.org/fedora/development/i386/os/ Domain installation may not have been successful. If it was, you can restart your domain by running 'virsh start test'; otherwise, please restart your installation.

Comment 1 Thomas DuBuisson 2008-03-12 21:06:03 EDT
This is just a check in OSDistro.py that is a bit overly restrictive. 'fedora.css' is just used to determine if the location is a fedora os tree. The check should either be fixed to work with rawhide (ex: look for a file that exists )or fedora.css should be included in rawhide.
Comment 2 Daniel Berrange 2008-03-12 23:30:49 EDT
What version of the python-virtinst RPM do you have. This problem was fixed in the python-virtinst 0.300.3 released to rawhide yesterday.
Comment 3 Thomas DuBuisson 2008-03-12 23:48:48 EDT
I'm behind the times what with using F8 as Dom0 and just trying to test rawhide via Xen DomU. Closing this bogus report now.
Comment 4 Daniel Berrange 2008-03-13 07:38:04 EDT
Re-opening because we need to ensure F9 DomU can be installed on an F8 dom0, since F9 will not initially support Xen dom0 functionality.
Comment 5 Thomas DuBuisson 2008-03-15 20:33:38 EDT
Oh, and to answer your question, I have python-virtinst 300.2. So good solutions would either be releasing 0.300.3 for F8 or adding the fedora.css file to the repo. It should be noted that this won't fix F9/rawhide PVMs GUI install. The vnc window doesn't open for rawhide when installing in GUI mode - perhaps there is a missing driver (xenfb?) in the rawhide initrd. Can't find a bug report - if I don't hear about one I'll create it.
Comment 6 Cole Robinson 2008-06-12 16:05:02 EDT
I've verified that F8 can detect and install an F9 tree correctly, so I'm closing this as NOTABUG
