Description Matthew Booth 2010-08-13 05:29:19 EDT
Description of problem:
I'm running fedora-virt-preview on F13.

None of my guests start without modification after the most recent libvirt update. They all have /domain/os/@machine='fedora-13'. Attempting to start any guest gives a qemu error:

# virsh start rhel6-v2v
error: Failed to start domain rhel6-v2v
error: internal error Process exited while reading console log output: Supported machines are:
pc         Standard PC (alias of pc-0.13)
pc-0.13    Standard PC (default)
pc-0.12    Standard PC
pc-0.11    Standard PC, qemu 0.11
pc-0.10    Standard PC, qemu 0.10
isapc      ISA-only PC

The workaround is obvious, however this interface must be stable across updates.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
libvirt-0.8.2-3.fc13.x86_64

What's the workaround, I've upped the host to F14rc4+ all updates.

virsh edit <domain>, and change the machine type to 'pc'.
Comment 4 Justin M. Forbes 2010-08-18 10:34:13 EDT
A patch introduced the fedora-13 machine type to ensure support for virtio-net and virtio-serial which were realistically pc-0.13 features.  In hind sight, this patch should not have been applied, but we need to support it now.  I will get new builds out which support the fedora-13 machine type, and we will carry this patch through F15 to ensure that guests are supported through the standard upgrade cycles.
Ideally, if you have already hit this bug, it is ideal that you change your machine type to pc-0.13 to avoid issues should the guests survive past F15.
