KVM Can't boot Fedora Persistent LiveUSB
Last modified: 2008-09-24 20:24:42 EDT
Description of problem:
While booting a LiveUSB results as an error. Grub loads but vmlinuz0 fails. Boots with QEMU but not KVM.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a persistent LiveUSB
2. Create a new VM using virt-manager
3. Boot from disk /dev/<usb>
Grub loads but vmlinuz0 errors: "vmlinuz0: attempted dos system call"
LiveUSB to boot as normal
This is probably the same problem that were preventing PXE boots.
It's fixed upstream, and should be easy to backport. I'll try to reproduce it here to make sure it really is, and spin a new rpm.
There is a scratch build at http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=789050 with a proposed fix for this issue. Can you verify if it really fixes it for you?
I confirm suggested Koji build fixes this issue.
Many thanks !
