Description Akira TAGOH 2010-02-24 00:58:40 EST
Description of problem: When starting VM, I got an error like: Error starting domain: internal error unable to start guest: qemu: could not open serial device 'pty': No such file or directory This error will be gone after stop using the fingerprint authentication and restart the desktop say. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): libvirt-0.7.1-15.fc12.x86_64

Can you still reproduce? If so, please provide: /var/log/libvirt/qemu/$vmname.log sudo virsh dumpxml $vmname Output of 'mount' What exactly do you mean fingerprint authentication? Are you removing a device from the guest XML and it fixes the issue?
Comment 2 Akira TAGOH 2010-05-23 23:33:02 EDT
No, it seems working now. I'm not sure if libvirt had any solutions for this but what the difference I can see is fprintd doesn't work on sudo anymore say. And yes, removing a serial device from the guest was only workaround on this issue. Again I have no idea why this happened. I'll close this so far but when I see this again, I'll reopen it. thanks.
