Wrong commented out syntax in kvm.conf
Last modified: 2016-01-23 22:27:12 EST
Description of problem:
In version 2.4.1-4 the file kvm.conf under /etc/modprobe.d was added, but its (actually commented) syntax is wrong, so that if a user simply uncomments one line he/she doesn't get what expected (nested virtualization enablement)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. uncomment intel line in /etc/modprobe.d/kvm.conf
2. now you have "option kvm_intel nested=1"
3. dracut -f -v + reboot (or modprobe -r kvm_intel ; modprobe kvm_intel)
systool -a -v -m kvm_intel | grep nested
nested = "N"
nested = "Y"
If you put the right syntax (with the final "s")
options kvm_intel nested=1
it works as expected
So, even if commented out, the lines should have te right syntax
Thanks for the report, setting to POST since the fix is known, I'll include it in the next build
