Description Jóhann B. Guðmundsson 2008-04-02 05:11:54 EDT
Description of problem:

Noticed this when I used an corrupt.iso ( failed sha1sum )file as local
install media it crashed Gnome..

recreated it using a dummy iso file

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Just create a file dd if=/dev/zero of=dummy-install.iso bs=1000 count=0

Create a new virtual host 

New --> System name = test --> Fully Virtualized x86_64 kvm --> Local install
media --> generic generic --> iso image location point to newly created
dummy-install.iso  --> simple file ...

As soon as virtual-machine tries run/boot the dummy/corrupt iso it crashes Gnome..

Steps to Reproduce:
1. The above
Actual results:


Expected results:

Could not boot from media or corrupt media or something similar.

What do you mean by  'crashes GNOME' ?   Does virt-manager crash, or does your
entire desktop session crash, or just the guest virtual machine crash ?
Comment 2 Jóhann B. Guðmundsson 2008-04-02 09:51:04 EDT
The entire desktops session crashes and I end up in GDM

Default f9beta install updated to current rawhide.

Did you even try duplicating this?
Comment 3 Daniel Berrange 2008-04-02 10:08:02 EDT
No I've not yet tried duplicating this because I don't have a working rawhide
machine accessible currently. 
Comment 4 Daniel Berrange 2008-04-02 10:23:38 EDT
I cannot reproduce this problem. The KVM guest starts and its BIOS fails to boot
from the CDROM as expected. There was no GNOME crash.

Please provide the log file

  /var/log/libvirt/qemu/{NAME OF GUEST}.log

The config file

  /etc/libvirt/qemu/{NAME OF GUEST}.xml

The virt-manger logfile


The /home/{YOUR USERNAME}/.xsession-errors file immediately after a crash and
Comment 5 Jóhann B. Guðmundsson 2008-04-02 17:05:27 EDT
I think the latest xorg-x11-server ( -16 ) fixed this for me..
At least X does not crash and virtual-manager reports now it cant
boot of the dummy iso and normal vguest seems to be running a whole lot smoother..

Close this I will comment on it if I hits me again..
