Cannot attach floppy disk image to domain, libVirtError
Last modified: 2010-05-10 16:17:46 EDT
Description of problem:
My domain is shut off, and I want to add a floppy disk drive to it from a .img file. I can't because of a libVirtError.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Click 'Add Hardware'
2.Type is 'Storage'
3.Choose disk image file
4.Choose 'Floppy disk' as the device type
5.'Floppy 1' is added. Now start the domain.
Error starting domain: internal error unable to start guest: can't parse: "isa-fdc,driveA=drive-fdc0-0-0"
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/engine.py", line 589, in run_domain
File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/domain.py", line 1208, in startup
File "/usr/lib64/python2.6/site-packages/libvirt.py", line 300, in create
if ret == -1: raise libvirtError ('virDomainCreate() failed', dom=self)
libvirtError: internal error unable to start guest: can't parse: "isa-fdc,driveA=drive-fdc0-0-0"
Fixed upstream by this commit, will be an easy backport:
This should be fixed by libvirt 0.7.7 in F-13 updates-testing.
Yes, now boots. Thanks.
