Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 567853
could not open serial device 'pty': No such file or directory
Last modified: 2010-05-23 23:33:02 EDT
Description of problem:
When starting VM, I got an error like:
Error starting domain: internal error unable to start guest: qemu: could not open serial device 'pty': No such file or directory
This error will be gone after stop using the fingerprint authentication and restart the desktop say.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Can you still reproduce? If so, please provide:
sudo virsh dumpxml $vmname
Output of 'mount'
What exactly do you mean fingerprint authentication? Are you removing a device from the guest XML and it fixes the issue?
No, it seems working now. I'm not sure if libvirt had any solutions for this but what the difference I can see is fprintd doesn't work on sudo anymore say.
And yes, removing a serial device from the guest was only workaround on this issue.
Again I have no idea why this happened. I'll close this so far but when I see this again, I'll reopen it. thanks.
