Description Milan Kerslager 2010-12-07 06:39:59 EST
I've got this when trying to do: yum install Virtualization

Non-fatal POSTIN scriptlet failure in rpm package 2:qemu-system-x86-0.13.0-1.fc14.x86_64
warning: %post(qemu-system-x86-2:0.13.0-1.fc14.x86_64) scriptlet failed, exit status 1
Comment 1 Justin M. Forbes 2010-12-09 12:20:41 EST
Can you tell me a bit more about your system? Do kvm modules load? 'lsmod | grep kvm'
The post for qemu simply does a sh %{_sysconfdir}/sysconfig/modules/kvm.modules which loads the kvm-intel module if the vmx CPU flag is present, and loads the kvm-amd module if the svm CPU flag is present.  If the modules are not loaded, can you load them yourself? 'modprobe -b <module>' where the module is the correct one for your hardware.
Comment 2 Milan Kerslager 2010-12-10 02:47:08 EST
The bug arised on fresh F14 system where I did:

yum groupinstall Virtualization

I have kvm loaded. Maybe there should be some package installed before qemu-system. The order of installed packages was (as in /var/log/yum.log):

Comment 3 Justin M. Forbes 2010-12-14 10:19:55 EST
This is curious, as I said, the qemu-system-x86 post only uses sh and modprobe, both of which have to be installed before you can even get to a yum prompt.  I am guessing there was some issue probing the module on your system at install time for some reason.  Going to close this, as I cannot reproduce or see any dependency issue which would cause this.  If you run into it again please feel free to reopen.
Comment 4 Orion Poplawski 2012-03-22 17:39:13 EDT
On systems without kvm support, "sh /etc/sysconfig/modules/kvm.modules" will return 1.  You need:

sh /etc/sysconfig/modules/kvm.modules || :

in the %post script.

Thanks for tracking this down, Orion! I'll be pushing a fix to all branches shortly.
