Description Mark McLoughlin 2009-04-16 11:23:20 EDT
Created attachment 339858 [details]
libvirt-0.6.2-qemu-drive-format.patch

If you have e.g.

  <disk type='file' device='disk'>
    <source file='/var/lib/libvirt/images/f11-beta.snap1.qcow2'/>
    <target dev='hda' bus='ide'/>
    <driver name='qemu' type='qcow2'/>
  </disk>

then you get:

  qemu: unknown parameter 'fmt' in 'if=ide,index=0,file=/var/lib/libvirt/images/f11-beta.snap1.qcow2,fmt=qcow2'

Turns out qemu takes '-drive format=' not '-drive fmt='

Simple patch attached
