Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 786187
list-filesystems error mentions "list-devices"
Last modified: 2012-05-03 09:42:23 EDT
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):
We should check that the appliance is up, and if not issue
a clearer error.
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.
