Description jrodriguez 2010-07-24 05:11:07 EDT
When i try create a vm with a serial port in libvirt 0.8.2, the vm don't recognize the serial port, but when i try the same xml with libvirt 0.7.5, the vm recognize correctly the serial port.

the XML is this:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<domain type="kvm">
    <type arch="i686">hvm</type>
    <boot dev="hd"/>
    <boot dev="cdrom"/>
  <clock sync="localtime"/>
    <disk type="file" device="disk">
      <source file="/root/.vnx/simulations/tutorial-r1_xp/vms/uml2/fs/root_cow_fs"/>
      <target dev="hda"/>
    <disk type="file" device="cdrom">
      <source file="/root/.vnx/simulations/tutorial-r1_xp/vms/uml2/fs/opt_fs.iso"/>
      <target dev="hdb"/>
    <interface type="bridge" name="eth1" onboot="yes">
      <source bridge="Net0"/>
      <mac address="fe:fd:00:00:01:01"/>
    <graphics type="vnc" listen=""/>
    <serial type="unix">
      <source mode="bind" path="/root/.vnx/simulations/tutorial-r1_xp/vms/uml2/uml2_socket"/>
      <target port="1"/>

Comment 1 Cole Robinson 2016-03-20 20:17:25 EDT
Sorry this bug never received a response. Libvirt has changed very much since this bug was filed, and I haven't heard any recent reports of unix socket chardevs not working, so I assume this is fixed. If you can still reproduce with recent libvirt and qemu, please reopen
