Description of problem:

After upgrade to Fedora 11 Preview from installer, the qemu-kvm binaries were
not updated. I had to do it manually:

[root@amt ~]# cat /etc/redhat-release
Fedora release 10.92 (Rawhide)
[root@amt ~]# rpm -qi kvm
Name        : kvm                          Relocations: (not relocatable)
Version     : 74                                Vendor: Fedora Project
Release     : 10.fc10                       Build Date: Mon 22 Dec 2008 03:52:39 PM BRST
Install Date: Fri 26 Dec 2008 12:26:57 PM BRST      Build Host: xenbuilder2.fedora.redhat.com

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

How reproducible:

Haven't attempted the upgrade more than once.

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual results:

Uggh, we really need this one fixed
Comment 3 Mark McLoughlin 2009-05-11 11:49:09 EDT
Moving it onto the blocker list for now, we should be able to get this fixed for GA
Comment 4 Mark McLoughlin 2009-05-11 17:19:34 EDT
Hmm, well a "yum --enablerepo=rawhide update kvm" on F10 looks like it does the right thing and installs qemu-system-x86_64

On the machine you upgraded, anaconda should have dumped some logs. Anything interesting in them?
Comment 5 Marcelo Tosatti 2009-05-11 18:58:18 EDT

If you look at the first attachment the problem apparently was due to the installed kqemu packages.

Attaching upgrade.log. All it says is:

Upgrading qemu-img-0.10-12.fc11.x86_64

Yeah, it may well have to do with the kqemu packages, but I'm not sure how.

kqemu requires qemu >= 0.9.1, which the update to qemu-0.10 would satisfy

Updating qemu would pull in all the qemu sub-packages, including qemu-system-x86_64

qemu-system-x86_64 obsoletes kvm-74, causing it to be deleted

i.e. if you had done "yum update qemu" instead of "yum install qemu-kvm", I would have expected it to work

I agree, a normal upgrade seems to do the right thing.  Adding in 3rd party packages may cause breakage, but that's what you get with 3rd party packages.  Moving this off the blocker list, I'm not even sure we need to "fix" anything here.
Comment 9 Mark McLoughlin 2009-05-13 06:13:35 EDT
Okay, closing this as INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Let's re-open if we get any more data on exactly how upgrades like Marcelo's gets screwed up
