Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 383761
Domains in the dying state cause virt-manager to hang in the connecting state
Last modified: 2008-12-21 03:28:07 EST
Description of problem:
If a domain is stuck in the process of dying then virt-manager can't be started.
This was discovered due to an as yet undetermined bug in either OpenSolaris PV
domU or xen. When the domain is shutdown there is a leaked L4 page table since
the domain never releases all its resources xen doesn't delete it. However
shutdown has proceeded far enough that the domain is no longer in xenstore.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install OpenSolaris domU.
2. Shut it down
3. Try to start virt-manager
virt-manager hangs in the connecting state.
virt-manager starts normally ignoring the domain.

Similar fix was applied upstream a couple months ago:
This isn't slated for F8 yet, but will be in F9. Putting bug in POST.
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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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:
This isn't hitting F8, but will be in for F9 shortly. Moving to F9.
virt-manager-0.6.0-0.fc9 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 9.
virt-manager-0.6.0-1.fc9 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 9.
virt-manager-0.6.0-1.fc9 has been pushed to the Fedora 9 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
