Description duryee 2006-09-04 23:06:14 EDT
Description of problem: When you run xenguest-install, if you put "256" for
guest memory instead of "256M", you get this cryptic message:

ERROR: Initial guest OS requires too much space
(0x14MB is greater than 0MB limit)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): FC6 with xen 3.0.2

How reproducible: every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. login as root
2. run xenguest-install
3. put "256" as the amount of guest memory instead of "256M"
Actual results:

cryptic error

Expected results:

xenguest-install should be able to handle the input

Fixed in new python-xeninst -- you can work around by passing -r 256 (or
whatever) on the command-line
