Description Eric Blake 2011-09-28 13:55:48 EDT
Description of problem:
The virt-preview repo is built by backporting the F16 qemu srpm to F15.  But since qemu advertised boot reordering, without explicitly requiring a version of seabios-bin that provides boot reordering, this means that a naive use of virt-preview in F15 results in a broken boot.  By fixing the F16 spec file, the F15 virt-preview use will be fixed.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum deplist qemu-system-x86, look for seabios-bin line
Actual results:
  dependency: seabios-bin
   provider: seabios-bin.noarch 0.6.2-2.fc16
Note that no explicit version was listed, which means we could downgrade seabios-bin below 0.6.2 and break boot reordering.

Expected results:
  dependency: seabios-bin >= 0.6.2
This will make the bios match qemu's advertisement, and allow virt-preview on F15 to work.
