Description Ruben Kerkhof 2010-08-02 20:45:27 UTC
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'>
          <source dir='/tmp/test'/>
          <target dev='fda' bus='fdc'/>
          <readonly/>
        </disk>

But libvirt returns:
libvir: Storage error : cannot read header '/tmp/test': Is a directory

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

libvirt-0.8.2-3.fc14


Additional info:

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)
