Description Thomas J. Baker 2009-05-27 11:01:12 EDT
I updated to virt-manager-0.7.0-5.fc11 and now when trying to create a ppc machine, it fails because it specifies '-M g3bw' to qemu-system-ppc when the option should be '-M g3beige' or nothing because g3beige is apparently the default. From the log: LC_ALL=C PATH=/sbin:/usr/sbin:/bin:/usr/bin /usr/bin/qemu-system-ppc -S -M g3bw -m 1024 -smp 1 -name sawhorse -uuid d88aa53c-db68-4091-56df-1a8010e8c4e7 -monitor pty -pidfile /var/run/libvirt/qemu//sawhorse.pid -no-reboot -boot d -drive file=/var/lib/libvirt/images/sawhorse-3.img,if=ide,index=0 -drive file=/tmp/Fedora-9-ppc-DVD.iso,if=ide,media=cdrom,index=2 -net nic,macaddr=54:52:00:11:c0:91,vlan=0 -net tap,fd=22,script=,vlan=0,ifname=vnet0 -serial pty -parallel none -usb -vnc 127.0.0.1:0 Supported machines are: g3beige Heathrow based PowerMAC (default) mac99 Mac99 based PowerMAC prep PowerPC PREP platform ref405ep ref405ep taihu taihu bamboo bamboo mpc8544ds mpc8544ds
Comment 1 Thomas J. Baker 2009-05-27 12:11:48 EDT
I tried rebuilding the libvirt-0.6.3-11.fc12.src.rpm with a patch (soon attached) that replaced all occurrences of g3bw with g3beige and now creating a ppc system seems to start OK but just hangs with a black screen. An error is logged: LC_ALL=C PATH=/sbin:/usr/sbin:/bin:/usr/bin HOME=/root USER=tjb LOGNAME=tjb /usr/bin/qemu-system-ppc -S -M g3beige -m 512 -smp 1 -name sawhorse -uuid d1f92863-ee9b-b0fd-fc0a-d69ba5ce3511 -monitor pty -pidfile /var/run/libvirt/qemu//sawhorse.pid -no-reboot -boot d -drive file=/var/lib/libvirt/images/sawhorse.img,if=ide,index=0 -drive file=/tmp/Fedora-9-ppc-DVD.iso,if=ide,media=cdrom,index=2 -net nic,macaddr=54:52:00:02:36:2a,vlan=0 -net tap,fd=18,script=,vlan=0,ifname=vnet0 -serial pty -parallel none -usb -vnc 127.0.0.1:0 char device redirected to /dev/pts/3 char device redirected to /dev/pts/4 invalid/unsupported opcode: 00 - 18 - 01 (00004070) 00000004 1 invalid/unsupported opcode: 00 - 04 - 17 (000095c8) 000095ec 0

Created attachment 345637 [details] g3bw to g3beige patch
Comment 3 Daniel Veillard 2009-05-28 04:36:07 EDT
Hum, the QEmu PPC emulation has changed since qemu support was added to libvirt. Patch looks fine, but I would prefer to have this handled directly on the firstname.lastname@example.org as for other upstream libvirt issues. https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/libvir-list Daniel
Comment 4 Thomas J. Baker 2009-05-28 08:23:22 EDT
What about the fact that it doesn't run even after patched? I can't really open another bug report about a patched version of libvirt, can I? Is PPC emulation supposed to work at all?
Comment 5 Daniel Berrange 2009-05-28 08:30:49 EDT
Well libvirt's responsbility ends once the QEMU process succesfully starts. The errors you now see invalid/unsupported opcode: 00 - 18 - 01 (00004070) 00000004 1 invalid/unsupported opcode: 00 - 04 - 17 (000095c8) 000095ec 0 should be reported against 'QEMU', since it looks like their PPC emulation bugs.

Of course! There may just not be many people testing it, is all. We'll do our best to fix any issues you come across, just please do file them as separate bugs.
Comment 7 Thomas J. Baker 2009-05-28 13:49:02 EDT
I posted the patch to the list. I updated to the updates-testing openbios. Now libvirt correctly starts a ppc machine which appears to start up correctly but it doesn't boot from the CDROM image I specified. It just gives me a '0 >' prompt and I don't understand how to boot it. Should I bugzilla this as an openbios bug? Thanks.
Comment 8 Mark McLoughlin 2009-06-04 11:44:51 EDT
tjb: yeah, any further problems you have, please file in another bug Patch is upstream now, need to pull it into F11
