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.
Comment 3 Daniel Chen 2007-09-28 20:52:03 EDT
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?
Comment 5 Daniel Chen 2008-03-19 12:37:19 EDT
