Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 460585
update virtinst to install f10 xen guests
Last modified: 2009-12-14 16:10:22 EST
virtinst will need to be fixed to install fedora 10 xen guests. the only real solution is to backport the treeinfo parsing code and pull out the images-xen entry for PV guests.
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux maintenance release. Product Management has requested
further review of this request by Red Hat Engineering, for potential
inclusion in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux Update release for currently deployed
products. This request is not yet committed for inclusion in an Update
I'm happy to test any rpms. I'd really like to be able to install F10/rawhide on my EL5 machine.

Parse treeinfo file if located in tree and add f10 os entry
Hmm, doesn't apply cleanly to python-virtinst-0.300.2-8.el5:
patch -b -p1 < ~/virtinst-0.300.2-f10-treeinfo.patch
patching file virtinst/FullVirtGuest.py
Hunk #1 FAILED at 45.
1 out of 1 hunk FAILED -- saving rejects to file virtinst/FullVirtGuest.py.rej
patching file virtinst/OSDistro.py
Hunk #2 succeeded at 51 (offset -1 lines).
Hunk #3 succeeded at 109 with fuzz 2.
FullVirtGuest.py fails because 0.300.2-8 doesn't list fedora9 as well. Added that.

so, dropped arch from Distro.__init__:

Now to get images-xen fixed in .treeinfo again...
Sorry, should have mentioned that this was applied dependent on some other changes.
You will probably need to apply the patches in bz 448634 and bz 449129 in order for this to apply cleanly. :( Lot's of mucking around in this section of the code it seems.
Is there a final src.rpm somewhere I could get?
This is built in python-virtinst-0.300.2-10.el5. Setting to MODIFIED.
Is there somewhere I can get a copy of python-virtinst-0.300.2-10.el5?
