Description Russell Doty 2008-11-26 15:33:18 EST
Description of problem:

Creation of virtual machine fails with error "Unable to complete install: 'internal error Timed out while reading monitor startup output'". 

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

How reproducible:

Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run GUI to create a new virtual machine.
2. Enter choices (have tried several different choices with same results)
3. Select finish
Actual results:

Unable to complete install: 'internal error Timed out while reading monitor startup output'

Unable to complete install '<class 'libvirt.libvirtError'> internal error Timed out while reading monitor startup output
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/create.py", line 723, in do_install
    dom = guest.start_install(False, meter = meter)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/virtinst/Guest.py", line 732, in start_install
    return self._do_install(consolecb, meter, removeOld, wait)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/virtinst/Guest.py", line 767, in _do_install
    self.domain = self.conn.createLinux(install_xml, 0)
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.5/site-packages/libvirt.py", line 892, in createLinux
    if ret is None:raise libvirtError('virDomainCreateLinux() failed', conn=self)
libvirtError: internal error Timed out while reading monitor startup output

Expected results:

Creation of virtual machine.

Additional info:

Fresh install of released F10 with latest updates. Phenom 9600 (Barcelona) processor. After closing error box, selecting "Finish" again will successfully create the new virtual machine.

A few questions:

- Does this reproduce reliably?
- Are you creating and fully allocating a disk via virt-manager? (basically default disk choices). How large?

Also, can you attach ~/.virt-manager/virt-manager.log?
Comment 2 Russell Doty 2008-12-01 15:43:01 EST
- Yes, this reproduces reliably for me.

- Yes, I'm creating and allocating a disk by virt-manager. I have seen the same behavior with both fully allocated and on-demand virtual disks. Disk sizes range from 4GB to 8GB.

I'll see about attaching the log when I get back to the system.

Okay, I think I know what the problem is. Duping this bug to the bug that's been open the longest on this issue.
