Please provide the path of the ISO image being used. Most likely problem is that
the ISO image was not in the /var/lib/xen/images/ directory, and SELinux was
running in enforcing mode.
I put the image path, such as "/home/DVD.img" in the iso path when the "virt-
manager" is launched, and SELinux is disabled.
Hi, this is against fedora 6 which is no longer supported. Do you still see this
issue f7 or f8?
No, it doesn't happenned with f7/f8.
Thanks, I'll close this bug as WORKSFORME.
