Description Doug Goldstein 2009-05-27 12:36:58 EDT
Created attachment 345648 [details] virtinst-0.400.3-kvm-img.patch Description of problem: virtinst relies on qemu-img to exist at runtime. Several distros install all of kvm with the utilities prefixed as kvm- so that there's not a file collision when installing qemu. Attached is a patch that should make it work in those cases.

Huh, good to know. I would also recommend you file a bug against libvirt for the same issue: libvirt storage APIs use qemu-img for all non-raw provisioning. It should be as simple as changing the configure script to look for kvm-img as well.
Comment 2 Doug Goldstein 2009-05-27 13:19:50 EDT
Will do Cole. I'm actually in the process of writing the patch for libvirt. It's a little bit more involved since I'm refactoring some code to support a few of the /* XXX: Need to support this when qemu-img does */ sections because kvm-img actually supports those features.
