Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 504418
In virt-inspector: "download: guestfs_download reply failed, see earlier error messages"
Last modified: 2010-03-27 06:16:20 EDT
This error happens rarely in virt-inspector:
download: guestfs_download reply failed, see earlier error messages at [...]
when downloading the /boot/initrd*.img. There are no
'earlier error messages'.
Possibly an instance of bug 501888 (although there is
no 'internal error: reply callback called twice' which
we would expect to see).
Also possible that this is a bug or untested corner in
the Perl bindings.
This changeset should ease the problem although it is
only a workaround:
We think the following patch should fix this error
libguestfs-1.0.70-1.fc11 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 11.
libguestfs-1.0.70-1.el5 has been submitted as an update for Fedora EPEL 5.
libguestfs-1.0.70-1.fc11 has been pushed to the Fedora 11 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
As noted in comment 2, the communications code was
extensively rewritten which should obsolete this bug.
