virt-install --nographics --paravirt is broken
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:20 EST
Description of problem:
virt-install --nographics --paravirt is broken, currently, on Fedora 7 and
As reported by Markus Armbruster:
"Dan pointed me to the fact that virt-install --nographics --paravirt
doesn't work in F-7 and Rawhide. I checked, and found that we lost
our hack to make sure console output goes somewhere sane when PVFB is
off. The appended patch applies both to kernel-xen-2.6/F-7 and devel.
I built a devel kernel, and it fixes virt-install."
The patch is attached to this bug report.
Steps to Reproduce:
virt-install --nographics --paravirt --file /var/lib/xen/images/text.img --file-size
5 --name text --ram 500 --location nfs:<path to Fedora
install kernel boots, prints a few messages, then i/o stops
proceeds to text install
