Description of problem:
commit e7c78b0a94a2c67ff7947a205100ed544bd8fab3 introduced the virtual FAT block device driver. I tried to define it according to the example in the commit log:
<disk type='dir' device='floppy'>
<target dev='fda' bus='fdc'/>
But libvirt returns:
libvir: Storage error : cannot read header '/tmp/test': Is a directory
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I tried to use vfat with qemu-kvm directly.
qemu-kvm 0.12.3 fails:
qemu-kvm -boot a -m 512 -vga std -vnc 0.0.0.0:7 -drive file=fat:/tmp/test,if=floppy,id=drive-fdc0-0-0,format=raw
qemu: could not open disk image fat:/tmp/test: No such file or directory
but the latest qemu-kvm from git works (commit 01ac6428a04576ae6f84f07d82c98da304b9ac77)
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
This should be fixed in all F15+
