Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 277841
virt-manager segfault while starting "connect process"
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:14 EST
Description of problem:
Not sure if this could be a dup of 277471. Since I updated to virt-manager 0.5,
if I start up a virtual machine, then try to open its console, virt-manager
exits suddenly. Syslog indicates that "/usr/share/virt" segfaulted, whatever
that is (I don't think it's the python interpreter that's crashing!). The
following are the last few lines of my ~root/.virt-manager/virt-manager.log file:
[Tue, 04 Sep 2007 23:08:14 virt-manager 4877] DEBUG (manager:633) Clicked a VM row
[Tue, 04 Sep 2007 23:08:14 virt-manager 4877] DEBUG (console:274) Trying console
[Tue, 04 Sep 2007 23:08:14 virt-manager 4877] DEBUG (console:284) Graphics
console configured at vnc://<my_hostname>:5900
[Tue, 04 Sep 2007 23:08:14 virt-manager 4877] DEBUG (console:297) Starting
connect process for <my_hostname> 5900
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
virt-manager-0.5.0-1.fc8 for x86_64
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open virt-manager
2. Double click on a VM
3. Click Run (VM starts running, but no console)
4. Close the console window
5. Double click on the VM again
Also, if I try to start the VM with the console window already open, the VM
starts running but the console window still says "not available" and no messages
appear in the log file (aside from the "VM started" message). It's not until I
close this window and try to reopen it that I get a crash.
I considered that my problem could be changes to the way the config is created
in /etc/libvirt, but I have confirmed that the same error occurs with a newly
created VM (only difference was the table device anyway).
My apologies for the duplicate report -- I was getting some kind of proxy error
from the Bugzilla server and I didn't think it was actually getting posted.
