Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 447449
vm_applet doesn't see running VMs
Last modified: 2010-04-27 12:21:32 EDT
Description of problem:
When a VM is active vm_applet doesn't display it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click vm_applet
2. See list of stopped VMs
3. Click on a VM
VM is started but disappears from list
VM start but stays in list with a green icon or something. Should also be able
to stop the vm from there.
Also is there a way to get the console opened from vm_applet? It starts the vm
but I have to use virt-manager to open the display which makes the applet
Running with selinux disabled due to bug #447448
I also see this. To expand, the applet *does* show running VMs, but only if all
listed VMs are running.
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
This bug is still present in Fedora 11 preview.
Indeed - seems like a pretty obvious bug which would be worth fixing for F11
Sorry, gnome-vm-applet has fallen into a pretty sad state of disrepair. I'll take some time this week to fix up these bugs.
Is there anything to test on this yet? The last koji build appears to be from feb.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Still seeing this in F11, would be great to get this fixed.
Seems a non-brainer.
If you need anyone to test, happy to assist.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 11 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 11. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '11'.
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 11'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 11 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:
gnome-applet-vm is dead upstream, and no bugs will be fixed in F11. virt-manager provides an applet in F12+ which obsoletes gnome-applet-vm. Closing as WONTFIX.
