Description Soeren Grunewald 2010-03-10 04:13:46 EST
Description of problem:

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


How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open details dialog for running vm (kvm)
2. select cdrom device
3. choose a iso from pool
Actual results:
Informational dialog that change will be made on next vm restart

Expected results:
vm can access insert iso

Additional info:
going back to virt-manager-0.8.2-1.fc12.noarch solves the issue
all other packages are still rawvirt

using virt-manager from rawvirt and libvirt/qemu from f12 does not solve the issue.
Comment 1 Cole Robinson 2010-04-05 12:24:58 EDT
This should be fixed by virt-manager 0.8.4 which should be in rawvirt. Closing as CURRENTRELEASE. 

If you can still reproduce with the latest packages, please reopen, and provide ~/.virt-manager/virt-manager.log.
Comment 2 Anthony Spinillo 2010-04-05 13:34:16 EDT
I updated to latest 0.8.4. Virt-Manager connects DVD ISO file to running guest (XP) now and does not say changes will be made on next vm restart. "Apply" button is grayed out though. The XP guest does not indicate that a dvd has been inserted though.

Clicking cdrom icon on XP guest, results in "Insert CD Now" message in XP.
If I reboot guest with ISO connected, it sees the DVD, but if I eject it in XP and reconnect in virt-manager, XP does not notice it.

Same results with a Fedora 12 guest.

Host is Fedora 12 running:

I will attach ~/.virt-manager/virt-manager.log

See above bug report.
Comment 4 Cole Robinson 2010-04-15 08:47:56 EDT
Sounds like this is a libvirt bug with latest qemu. Patch available for libvirt upstream:


Probably want to backport this to F13 if applicable.
