Description of problem:

When I try to connect to a remote f12 vm from my local f12 using virt-viewer and ssh, libvirt segfaults.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

virt-viewer -c qemu+ssh://root@host dns

Dec  8 14:02:08 frooknuckle kernel: libvirtd[5848]: segfault at 0 ip 0000003a8bb1bdb6 sp 00007fa6cff82aa8 error 4 in libc-2.11.
Comment 1 Richard W.M. Jones 2009-12-10 09:41:03 EST
Here's where it fails:

#0  __strcmp_sse42 () at ../sysdeps/x86_64/multiarch/strcmp.S:129
#1  0x000000000043111f in qemudOpen (conn=0x7fffe4000960, auth=<value optimized out>, flags=<value optimized out>)
    at qemu_driver.c:2835

I suspect that conn->uri->path is NULL.

Does it work if you use a URI with a trailing slash, ie:

virt-viewer -c qemu+ssh://root@host/ dns
Comment 2 Richard W.M. Jones 2009-12-10 09:41:32 EST
Also try:

virt-viewer -c qemu+ssh://root@host/system dns

> Does it work if you use a URI with a trailing slash, ie:

virt-viewer -c qemu+ssh://root@host/ dns

results in:

error : qemudOpen:2839 : internal error unexpected QEMU URI path '/', try qemu:///system

no segfault, but no connection either

> Also try:
> virt-viewer -c qemu+ssh://root@host/system dns  

That one works. No segfault.
Comment 4 Richard W.M. Jones 2009-12-10 11:40:38 EST
Patch posted upstream.
Comment 6 Catalin BOIE 2010-02-23 03:34:01 EST
Can we have an updated version in F12, please?
We are affected by this bug: libvirtd does not start (segmentation fault).
