qemu qcow2 image corruption
Last modified: 2009-04-30 03:06:22 EDT
qcow2 images are known to be corrupted occasionally, most commonly seen as windows registry corruption.
This was recently fixed upstream by a simple one-line endianess patch:
We should include this in F11 qemu.
Built into dist-f11-updates-candidate as qemu-0.10-11.fc11

Actually windows registry corruption was fixed by this patch: http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/qemu-devel/2009-03/msg01667.html, but Kevin's patch fixes very serious issue too.
Thanks Gleb, I've included Nolan's patch now too:
