Comment 1 Mark McLoughlin 2009-05-25 07:19:14 EDT
Thanks for the report, but I can't reproduce here on F-10 or F-11

Please include the full command line for the guest (e.g. from /var/log/libvirt/qemu if using libvirt)
Comment 2 Mark McLoughlin 2009-05-25 07:21:31 EDT
By command line I mean qemu-kvm command line, not /proc/cmdline

Also, what guest kernel is this?

Your /proc/cpuinfo might help too.

Could you try reproducing with qemu-0.10.4 from F-11?
Comment 3 Chris Lalancette 2009-05-25 07:26:14 EDT
I took a quick look at this.  Using F-11 qemu (0.10-16), I was not able to reproduce.  I'll give it a shot with Fedora 10 qemu, and see what happens.

Comment 4 Chris Lalancette 2009-05-25 07:44:05 EDT
OK, tried with F-10 kvm package + BIOS, and I still couldn't reproduce.  My guest was a F-10 i386 guest, my host was an F-11 x86_64, with either the qemu packages from F-11 or the kvm packages from F-10.

Answering the questions that Mark posed might help us reproduce.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 10 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 10.  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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '10'.

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 10'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 10 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:
