Description Lingfei Kong 2014-10-11 08:57:05 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1151738 +++

Description of problem:
virt-edit doesn't support --format raw, it only support --format=raw, so line '--format raw|qcow2|...' should change to '--format=raw|qcow2|...' in man virt-edit

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Prepare a rhel guest image: rhel.img
2. Read man virt-edit, search --format raw
3. #virt-edit --format raw -a rhel.img  /etc/hosts

Actual results:
#virt-edit --format raw -a rhel.img  /etc/hosts
libguestfs: error: download: download_stub: path must start with a / character

Expected results:
command 'virt-edit --format raw -a rhel.img  /etc/hosts' should give a proper error message,such as:
#virt-edit --format raw -a rhel.img
Try `virt-edit --help' for more information.
