Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 478855
kvm-81-1.fc11.x86_64 is missing /usr/share/kvm/bios.bin, vgabios.bin, ...

Description of problem:
[tbl@tlondon ~]$ rpm -q kvm
[tbl@tlondon ~]$ rpm -ql kvm | grep bios
Running "qemu-kvm" fails with a complaint about missing bios.bin.
Copying bios.bin and vgabios*.bin from kvm-79-1.fc11.x86_64.rpm to /usr/share/kvm "makes this work for me".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
In theory it was supposed to not need those, according to the changelog. I'm putting this on the Alpha tracker as I'd really like it to work for alpha.
There's a mistake in the configure args, and this is compounded by the lack of explicit file listing in the RPM spec, so the missing BIOS files were never detected at build time. I'm building a fix very shortly....
Patch is ready and committed to CVS.
Unable to build in rawhide due to utterly broken kernel headers bug 478663
Built into kvm-81-2.fc11
I can verify: kvm-81-2.fc11.x86_64 "works for me".
