Description of problem:

As seen here:  

https://www.redhat.com/archives/et-mgmt-tools/2009-March/msg00100.html AND 


if I create a Virtual Disk in virtinst using the correct device type and the path to a disk ISO, the libvirt XML is generated to picks the wrong device file and the install cannot continue (/dev/hda is not a floppy drive).

I need this to do scripted Windows installs (ISO+fullvirt+answer file on floppy) from cobbler+koan.

Fix is here:


It applies just fine to the latest rawhide version, so maybe a good cherry-pick candidate
Comment 2 Cole Robinson 2009-04-09 11:20:53 EDT
Okay, build into python-virtinst-0.400.3-5.fc11. Closing as RAWHIDE.
Comment 3 Michael DeHaan 2009-04-09 11:36:23 EDT
Can you also see that this is fixed for F10?
Comment 4 Cole Robinson 2009-04-09 12:04:34 EDT
Sure, just built it. 0.400.3 hasn't been pushed to stable yet, but I will likely do that next week.
