Description Dave Allan 2012-02-16 14:54:25 EST
Description of problem:
I configured a VM to use sgabios but got no output on my serial console:

# qemu-kvm -nographic
Could not open option rom 'sgabios.bin': No such file or directory

Manually creating the symlink in /usr/share/qemu fixes things:

# ln -s /usr/share/sgabios/sgabios.bin /usr/share/qemu

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
sgabios-0-0.20110621SVN.fc16.x86_64

How reproducible:
100%

This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
Comment 2 Cole Robinson 2012-05-29 10:03:39 EDT
This is actually a qemu packaging bug, qemu needs to depend on sgabios, and create that symlink like it does for other bioses. Affects f16+
Comment 3 Cole Robinson 2012-07-10 07:27:02 EDT
Moving to POST since it's just a spec tweak
