Description Mark Watts 2010-08-30 16:22:43 EDT
Note: I have both updates-testing and the rawvirt (http://jforbes.fedorapeople.org/virt-preview/f13/$basearch/) repos enabled.

Fully up-to-date as of 30/08/2010

Attempting to install CentOS 5.5 via kickstart in a KVM virtual machine:

NAME=VM_01; virt-install --connect qemu:///system \
	--wait 10 \
	--os-variant=rhel5.4 \
	--os-type=linux \
	--name $NAME \
	--ram 256 \
	--vcpus=1 \
	--disk path=/dev/KVM_Volume/$NAME,bus=virtio \
	--network bridge=br0 \
	--noautoconsole \
	--location \
	-x "ks="

Domain installation still in progress. Waiting 10 minutes for installation to complete.
Domain has shutdown. Continuing.
ERROR    'VirtualDisk' object has no attribute 'DRIVER_TYPE_AIO'

Domain installation does not appear to have been
successful. If it was, you can restart your domain
by running 'virsh start VM_01'; otherwise, please
restart your installation.

Manually starting the VM works as expected.

Thanks for the report, fixed upstream:

Comment 3 MikeP 2010-10-23 16:24:18 EDT
if the upstream fix is this one

Then it just changes the error to:

Comment 4 Cole Robinson 2010-10-27 11:29:13 EDT
Yeah, an additional fix and unit test was committed later:

Comment 5 MikeP 2010-11-16 11:52:01 EST
Just checked the FC14 Release code and this update is not in 

I have tried the change as above and it certainly work for an XP install either from virt-install or console.

its marked as post so fingers crossed
Comment 6 Charles Butterfield 2010-12-09 15:00:37 EST
I've also run into this problem on F14.  How exactly do I get this update?  Do I need to enable the "updates-testing" repo?
Comment 7 Charles Butterfield 2010-12-09 15:03:56 EST
Sorry, I should have "just done it" - then I would have seen that there is no update.  Is the correct approach to just manually replace the single "Installer.py" file mentioned in Comment 4?
Comment 8 Cole Robinson 2010-12-09 15:14:48 EST
Created attachment 467837 [details]
Patch for F14 code

There isn't an update yet. An interim fix is to download the attachment, then as root run

patch -p2 -d /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/virtinst < /path/to/the/downloaded/file.patch

If for some reason that makes thing worse, you can recover with

yum install yum-utils
yumdownloader python-virtinst
rpm -Uvh --force python-virtinst*.rpm

An update is coming soon-ish, I'm just trying to get some work done before I push an upstream release.
Comment 9 Charles Butterfield 2010-12-09 19:03:16 EST
Thanks! I applied the F14 patch (in comment #8) and all is well :-)
