virt-manager New Virtual System Wizard memory issues
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:43 EST
Description of problem:
Whenever I try to create a new virtual machine instance with the new
virtual system wizard and it gets to the point to define start up and max
memory, no matter what size I put in, it uses the default remaining available
memory. I have to go back and edit the /etc/xen/machineX config file to fix the
memory="" block afterwards.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. lauch virt-manager and connect to the local xen instance
2. Click on the "New" button.
3. Define the device and set to Fully Virtualized
4. Set up a simple file for drive.
5. Define the Max and Start up memory to 256
Once you complete the wizard, it starts the new virtual system, but with the
maximum default memory left and not the amount defined in the wizard.
System should be started with amount of memory defined in the wizard.
The fix for this issue is already being worked on. It wasn't dealing with change
events in the spinbox correctly - if you type in memory it won't pick it up, but
if you use the up/down buttons it works as desired. Will update this ticket
again when I push a new errata to rawhide.
This is fixed in rawhide, virt-manager-0.2.2-1
