Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 435257
virt-manager shows bogus size when adding a virt device backed by a block device
Last modified: 2008-12-21 03:28:14 EST
Description of problem:
I guess this could be related to bug 218202. When I add a virtual storage device
backed by a block device, virt manager will in the final screen of the wizard
(just before pressing 'finish') tell me that the disk size is 2000MB no matter
how large the block device is...
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add a storage device to a VM.
2. Chose a normal disk partition as it's source
3. Watch virt-manager tell you that the "disk size" is 2000 MB
Hi, this is now fixed upstream:
For the guest creation wizard:
For the add hardware wizard:
*** Bug 452854 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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:
Moving to F9, this will be fixed in the next update.
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.
If you want to test the update, you can install it with
su -c 'yum --enablerepo=updates-testing-newkey update virt-manager'. You can provide feedback for this update here: http://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/F9/FEDORA-2008-10705
virt-manager-0.6.0-1.fc9 has been pushed to the Fedora 9 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
