Description Richard W.M. Jones 2012-01-31 12:03:56 EST
Description of problem:

If the backend hasn't been launched, you see this error:

$ guestfish -a /dev/null list-filesystems
libguestfs: error: list_devices: call launch before using this function
(in guestfish, don't forget to use the 'run' command)

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


How reproducible:


Expected results:

We should check that the appliance is up, and if not issue
a clearer error.
Comment 1 Richard W.M. Jones 2012-05-03 09:42:23 EDT
Closing this, as I don't think it's a serious problem.
We've also decided upstream to have a policy of not
rewriting error messages.
