Screenshot 1

I got a strange error when creating a new VM from an ISO image I had in my home directoy. virt-manager told me that the emulator may not have the permissions to access the file here and offered to correct it (screenshot 1). I pressed ok and got another window which told me that changing the permissions on my home folder is not supported (screenshot 2). I noticed that the ISO image itself was no longer owned by my user though, and that I needed root permissions to change this again.

I think that the first window should explain better who needs which permissions and what virt-manager actually has to change. I ended up moving the ISO image to /iso because changing ACLs inside my home didn't seem like a great idea.

Michael: could you attach ~/.virt-manager/virt-manager.log

First thing we need to do is figure out why the setfacl failed - is your homedir NFS mounted?
Comment 3 Michael Monreal 2009-10-29 12:59:05 EDT
I am currently updating to the latest *virt* and qemu* packages and will try again with those. All I can say right now is that my home is not on NFS (it is ext3)
Comment 4 Mark McLoughlin 2009-10-29 13:07:48 EDT
If you do 

  $> tune2fs -l $dev  | grep 'mount options'

on the device which /home is mounted, is it missing the 'acl' option?

If so, then it's a dup of bug #530210

Default mount options:    (none)

Technically the other bug is the dupe but it has more useful information, so... CLOSED=>DUPLICATE

*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of bug 530210 ***
