Description of problem:
If you try to install from an ISO image located in your home
directory, with the normal permissions on the home directory
(0700) then you'll get a permission denied error like this:
ERROR internal error Process exited while reading console log output: char device redirected to /dev/pts/4
qemu: could not open disk image /home/rjones/tmp/RHEL6.0-20100922.1-Server-x86_64-DVD1.iso: Permission denied
It was very unclear to me what the permission problem was, since
the file itself was 0644 and had the right SELinux labels.
virt-install could do better here. Before passing the image to
libvirt, it could walk up the tree checking each file and directory
and warning on possible permissions problems.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
