LiveCD Installer hangs during guest VM install-to-virt-drive
Last modified: 2009-06-15 22:28:50 EDT
Description of problem: As soon as i try to install F10 or F11 from LiveCD
to my VM's virtual HD (also running F10 or F11), the installation hangs:
the installer's blue spash screen appears, and the guest's CPU load drops
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
qemu-kvm x86_64, v. 0.10.4
How reproducible: consistent for me, one coworker has replicated on his T61/F11
Steps to Reproduce:
1. in virt-manager, boot VM from a .iso file
2. double-click on the "Install to hard drive" icon
Actual results: installer and reboot fails to progreess, the guests's CU load collapses, and the parent's disk activity goes quiet, too.
Additional info: this failure shows up on:
* my t500, running F11;
* my old t61, running F10.
* sgallagh's t61, running F11
I experienced this failure when installing the Fedora 10 x86_64 LiveCD (Gnome) in F11 (fully updated as of 6/1/2009).
However, an install of the Fedora 11 Preview x86_64 LiveCD completed successfully for me.
I was unable to identify any log messages that looked suspicious.
i replaced my F10 .iso with F11-Preview. Now the install-to-hard-drive
completes, but after reboot, the restart stalls with a 100% white-on-black
progress bar. - don davis
this bug is severely blocking me. i have to run some kerberos tests, and i need VMs in order to do so. i've spent 4 fruitless days trying to get virt / kvm to
gcosta (glommer) told me tonight that his version 0.10.5-1
fixes my problem, and he's right, my installed VM is working
now. on koji: qemu-*-0.10.5-1.fc11.x86_64.rpm
thanks, glommer! - don davis, IPA group, westford
Thanks for testing, Don
Okay, Stephen says it doesn't fix the issue for him
Please try again with the qemu-0.10.5-2.fc11 update - it fixes a cdrom issue that could be the underlying cause here
qemu-0.10.5-2.fc11 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 11.
Stephen/Don - thanks for testing and adding a comment to the update
