Description Saori Fukuta 2007-07-02 05:15:05 EDT
Description of problem:
  I would like to set the type of driver device(aio/sync ...etc),
  when I install the guest domain.
  But there is no option on virt-install, so I can not specify any 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
  virtinst 0.103.0(changeset 205)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
  1.install the guest domain
  # virt-install ...
Actual results:
  We can not specify the type of driver device.

Expected results:
  We can specify the type of driver device.

Additional info:
  I attached the patch that I added the option to choose the
  type of driver device.

  virt-install help:
  --drvtype=DRVTYPE     Type of driver device, e.g. 'aio', 'qcow', 'vmdk',

Having driver as a command line option seems useful, but virt-install prompting
the user for a driver on a "guided" install is not the best idea: the info is
not needed as we can choose a working default, and it is probably too advanced
for most people using the guided install.

Could you remove that portion of the patch, and post it to
et-mgmt-tools@redhat.com for a wider audience? Thanks!

Many thanks for reviewing this BZ.
I had already posted it, and I understood the option which I added was not 
really useful option, because its only used by Xen paravirt.
c.f. the thread at:
And, it will be too advanced for installing as you said.

So, could you close this BZ ?

Ah sorry, must have missed when that patch came by on the list. Thanks for the
pointer, closing this as WONTFIX.
