Description Miloslav Trmač 2009-03-20 13:39:06 EDT
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Steps to Reproduce:
1. qemu-img create -f qcow2 foo.img 100M
2. qemu-kvm -m 128 -hda foo.img 
=> qemu window opens, system starts booting (and fails because there is no OS installed)
3. qemu-img create -e -f qcow2 foo.img 100M
   (note: no password prompt - I'd sort of expect one)
4. qemu-kvm -m 128 -hda foo.img
=> qemu-kvm just sits there, no window opens, no prompt appears.  strace shows
   a loop of
        select(0, [], [], [], {0, 10000})

There was some monitor rework done by Jan Kiszka upstream, but I don't know if the new code entered the Fedora package. There were two patches I've sent to fix a similar issue, but before the monitor rework. They are on this thread:

Thanks for the report. I've confirmed this is broken in F10.

With rawhide, it works for me using '-monitor stdio':

qemu-kvm -S -monitor stdio -vnc :1 -m 128 -hda foo.img
QEMU 0.10.0 monitor - type 'help' for more information
(qemu) cont
ide0-hd0 (foo.img) is encrypted.
Password: ****
(qemu) quit

Without '-monitor stdio', you need to hit Ctrl-Alt-2 to get to the qemu monitor and you'll see that you've been prompted for the password.

Closing as fixed in rawhide because we're unlikely to fix it in F10.
