Description Andreas Sommer 2009-08-18 14:28:47 UTC
Description of problem:
Look at "libvirt.py", lines 1081-1099. The method "createXML" (one for devices, one for domains) is duplicate, thus only the second one is usable. Should be renamed in some way.

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

Comment 1 Daniel Veillard 2009-08-19 10:30:10 UTC
Right, I'm looking at it and there is some nasty things in the generator,
I will post a patch upstream shortly,

 thanks for the heads-up !

This is yet another occurrance of this fix we previously did

commit 61243e0f57f966d48194a4a0db50871125fe972f

    Fix generation of networkCreateXML and storagePoolCreateXML

Same changes should work for virNetworkCreateXML too, which is what is probably causing the trouble.

Comment 3 Daniel Veillard 2009-08-19 19:21:20 UTC
Yeah, but there are other bugs in the class method name generator,
see for example in the Interface class :-)
I'm trying to clean this up a little bit to make things simpler
on the long term...


Comment 4 Andreas Sommer 2009-09-09 10:22:33 UTC
Can you please tell me from which python-libvirt version on this bug will be corrected?
