Description of problem:
After Installation of cockpit-machines (264-1.fc36) there is no storage pool defined, of course.
Trying to create a new storage pool using /var/lib/libvirt/boot or /var/lib/libvirt/images as created by libvirt installation always end in an error message "Target path should not be empty", regardless if there are files in the directory of not.
In the previous versions that worked flawlessly.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
cockpit-machines-264-1.fc36.noarch on Fedora Server F36 beta 1.4
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora Server F36 beta 1.4
2. Install "dnf install qemu-kvm-core libvirt virt-install cockpit-machines"
3. Try to create a storage pool e.g. "Installation media" in /var/lib/libvirt/boot
Error message "Target path should not be empty" blocks creating the pool whether there are files in the subdir or not.
A storage pool should be created.
Worked without issues wich previous versions.
@Peter Boy, missed replying here on time. I can't reproduce this with latest available cockpit-machines (282).
If you can still reproduce it please update the issue with more details ex:
do you copy paste or ue keyboard to type the pool target?
does the issue persist if you change the order that you fill in the fields?
