Description Red Hat Bugzilla 2009-01-27 13:31:14 EST

---- Reported by yeylon@redhat.com 2007-12-02 14:43:04 EDT ----

booting a guest and installing the tools using qxl display, when booting the guest again later using VNC you will be requested to install driver for PV once more (and it will not happen automatically)

I think there's a bug about this for Izik, about PCI devices persistency in their 'slots'

can it be closed?
Comment 2 Daniel Berrange 2009-12-13 09:37:35 EST
The task of ensuring consistent PCI slots is not really something to be solved at the KVM level, it merely exposes the mechanism todo so (the new -device arg allows PCI addr to be set). libvirt is intending to allow static PCI slots to be specified when configuring guests, so if this bug is still needed, it should likely be switched over to the libvirt component
Comment 4 Daniel Berrange 2010-01-08 12:33:15 EST
Updated combined series with this support

Comment 5 Daniel Veillard 2010-01-21 12:37:24 EST
libvirt-0.7.6-0.pre20100121.el6 has been built in RHEL-6-candidate
and includes the new QEmu device setting code,

Comment 7 dyuan 2010-06-24 09:20:30 EDT
Verified PASSED with libvirt-0.8.1-10.el6. libvirt could stable guest ABI .

Test scenario:
1. Upgrade qemu-kvm on host
2. remove device from guest
