Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 741992
qemu-kvm should require seabios-bin >= 0.6.2
Last modified: 2013-01-09 06:55:02 EST
Description of problem:
The virt-preview repo is built by backporting the F16 qemu srpm to F15. But since qemu advertised boot reordering, without explicitly requiring a version of seabios-bin that provides boot reordering, this means that a naive use of virt-preview in F15 results in a broken boot. By fixing the F16 spec file, the F15 virt-preview use will be fixed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum deplist qemu-system-x86, look for seabios-bin line
provider: seabios-bin.noarch 0.6.2-2.fc16
Note that no explicit version was listed, which means we could downgrade seabios-bin below 0.6.2 and break boot reordering.
dependency: seabios-bin >= 0.6.2
This will make the bios match qemu's advertisement, and allow virt-preview on F15 to work.
