Description cdmiller 2008-06-13 18:54:41 EDT
Description of problem:
A cdrom media change no longer works in qemu 0.9.1.  From qemu FAQ:


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
libvirt 0.4.2
kvm 0.69

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install qemu 0.9.1
2. check info block in qem monitor of running vm
3. try a cd change from virsh
Actual results:
change doesn't work, libvirt always uses cdrom rather than ide1-cd0

Expected results:

Can you try with libvirt-0.4.3 which was just released. I think I have
seens changes which could affect this,
there is an update for F-9 and one for F-8 in testing

Comment 2 cdmiller 2008-06-15 20:31:01 EDT
Ok, I installed libvirt 0.4.3, and fired up a kvm vm.  Attempting to change the
cd within virt-manager results in the following log entries for the vm:

eject cdrom
change cdrom path-to-iso-file

and the cd change does not work (still pointing to original iso file).  Using
just qemu (no libvirt) and issuing a change ide1-cd0 from qemu console does
work.  So it appears libvirt 0.4.3 is still not working for cdrom change with
qemu 0.9.1 / kvm 0.69.

This should be fixed upstream now:


New release will most likely be in time for f10 beta. Closing this as UPSTREAM.
