Description Jon Masters 2007-10-14 22:10:22 UTC
Description of problem:

Failure to read a mounted CD results in an unpleasant error, only after the new
domain has been created...i.e. after the user has waited for disk allocation,
creation of new domain, etc. only then does a cryptic looking error appear.


Comment 1 Cole Robinson 2008-05-07 17:49:21 UTC
This is pretty old, but...

Any chance you still have the error, or are you still seeing this? If not, do
you remember how the mount read failed (as in, any reasonably way to reproduce?)

virt-manager-0.6.0-1.fc10.x86_64 on rawhide with all updates of today. If you install a new virtual machine and choose for a physical CD while there is none you'll get a backtrace:

Uncaught error validating input: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'startswith'

Traceback (most recent call last):

Comment 3 Bug Zapper 2008-11-26 07:58:52 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 8.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '8'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 8's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 

Comment 4 Cole Robinson 2008-11-26 16:31:45 UTC
Moving to F10, I'll look into this.

Comment 5 Cole Robinson 2009-01-24 18:58:02 UTC
Okay, a fix is pushed upstream:


Moving to POST.
