Last modified: 2013-01-09 06:35:39 EST
abrt 1.0.9 detected a crash.
Attached file: backtrace
cmdline: qemu-system-x86_64 -hda vista.img -hdb fat:rw:/tmp/share -boot c -m 1024 -monitor stdio -S -snapshot
comment: Without the -hdb fat:rw:/tmp/share option, it doesn't crash (it doesn't boot either, but no crash).
reason: Process /usr/bin/qemu-system-x86_64 was killed by signal 6 (SIGABRT)
release: Fedora release 12 (Constantine)
How to reproduce
1. I just ran qemu-system-x86_64 -hda vista.img -hdb fat:rw:/tmp/share ...

It's a crash in the vfat code in qemu. Can you try any of the newer qemu-kvm rpms, like the one from virt-preview, which is based off qemu 0.12?
Hey Amit :-)
I've looked through the code on git myself and it seems to have changed to the better.
If you give me an RPM, I'd happily install and test it.
There's a wiki page that details how to use the virt-preview repo:
Does that work? Upgrading to a newer qemu upgrades certain other rpms too, so it's difficult to point to just one rpm.
I've installed Fedora 13 and it still crashes: see bug 605202.
This should be fixed with the latest qemu-0.12.5 packages in F13. Please reopen if this is not the case.
