Description Lucas Meneghel Rodrigues 2009-09-17 18:13:21 EDT
Description of problem: When trying to install an operating system using virt-manager, an error happens at the end of the install process. Taking Fedora 11 as the example operating system, anaconda throws the following error: An error occurred mounting device /dev/mapper/vg_f11-lv_root as /: mount failed: (2, None). This is a fatal error and the install cannot continue. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Virt-manager version: virt-manager-0.8.0-3.fc12.noarch Other relevant package versions: libvirt-python-0.7.1-1.fc12.i686 libvirt-client-0.7.1-1.fc12.i686 libvirt-0.7.1-1.fc12.i686 qemu-img-0.10.92-4.fc12.i686 qemu-kvm-0.10.92-4.fc12.i686 qemu-common-0.10.92-4.fc12.i686 gpxe-roms-qemu-0.9.7-5.fc12.noarch qemu-system-x86-0.10.92-4.fc12.i686 How reproducible: Allways Steps to Reproduce: 1. Install Fedora 11 GA (livecd) using virt-manager 2. Wait until the install finishes 3. In the final stage of install, the error: An error occurred mounting device /dev/mapper/vg_f11-lv_root as /: mount failed: (2, None). This is a fatal error and the install cannot continue. (screenshot attached) Actual results: Install fails. Expected results: Fedora 11 install inside the VM succeeds. Additional info: Checking the permissions of the image file created by virt-manager one can see: [f12@f12 images]$ ls -la total 3716888 drwxrwxr-x. 2 f12 f12 4096 2009-09-17 18:41 . drwxrwxr-x. 3 f12 f12 4096 2009-09-17 12:45 .. -rw-------. 1 qemu qemu 7340032000 2009-09-17 18:52 fedora11.img So, as far as permissions go, there's nothing wrong with the image file used as a disk for the VM. Image file creation was made trough virt-manager (raw file). In order to perform this install I had to execute a workaround, because install is not possible trough normal means due to bug #524109: 1. Pick up a working VM 2. Replace the ISO file backing up the cdrom device 3. Add a new virtio disk, remove the old disk 4. Mark the vm to boot using the CD In this case, it's not clear to me whether this defect is actually virt-manager's fault, or one of the underlying pieces (as libvirt and qemu).

Created attachment 361573 [details] Screenshot of the install failure This is the error message I've got during the final stage of Fedora 11 GA install.
Comment 2 Mark McLoughlin 2009-09-21 12:36:25 EDT
Interesting, can't think what might be causing this Can you reproduce something similar using rawhide qemu-kvm directly from the command line? Could you include ~/.virt-manager/virt-manager.log and /var/log/libvirt/qemu/$guest.log
Comment 3 Bug Zapper 2009-11-16 07:35:13 EST
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 12 development cycle. Changing version to '12'. More information and reason for this action is here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping

Closing as WORKSFORME. Please reopen if you can still reproduce.
Comment 5 Lucas Meneghel Rodrigues 2009-11-17 20:13:33 EST
Indeed as of latest rawhide it's working great, thanks Cole!
