How reproducible:
# virt-install -n vm1 -r 1024  -l /tmp/CentOS-5.5-i386-bin-DVD.iso --accelerate --os-type=linux -f /dev/VGDATA/vm1.root -f /dev/VGDATA/vm1.swap --vnc --hvm

Steps to Reproduce:
1.

Actual results:
# virt-install -n vm1 -r 1024  -l /tmp/CentOS-5.5-i386-bin-DVD.iso --accelerate --os-type=linux -f /dev/VGDATA/vm1.root -f /dev/VGDATA/vm1.swap --vnc --hvm

Expected results:


Additional info: I think virt-install is unable to detect correct drivers for lvm and treating lvm as ide

I am getting following in logs:-

Comment 1 Justin M. Forbes 2010-11-29 13:58:34 EST
I notice you are using i686 qemu.  Does this work with the most recent kernel from testing/koji?  I am not able to reproduce the lvm issues, but there is an issue with i686 kvm which is resolved with the latest koji kernels for F14.
Comment 2 Justin M. Forbes 2010-12-14 10:14:56 EST
Closing this one.  The i686 fix has been pushed to live, and I cannot reproduce.  Please feel free to reopen if the i686 updated kernel does not fix the issue for you.
