Description Chris Lalancette 2006-11-07 17:03:42 UTC
Description of problem:
When you click "Details", and then Hardware for an HVM guest, it will allow you
to change the currently amount of memory allocated to the guest, even though HVM
guests don't support memory ballooning at all.  These options should be greyed
out so we don't give the user the false impression that we can memory balloon.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
virt-manager 0.2.5-1.el5
libvirt 0.1.8-1.el5
