virt-inspector to detect ia64 Windows 2k3 install media
Last modified: 2012-11-30 08:19:36 EST
Description of problem:
I have a Win2k3 ISO image, which is for ia64 architecture
virt-inspector fails to detect it
# guestfish -a ./win2k3/ga/en_windows_server_2003_enterprise_64bit.iso
Welcome to guestfish, the libguestfs filesystem interactive shell for
editing virtual machine filesystems.
Type: 'help' for help on commands
'man' to read the manual

Currently detection of ISO media is broken. The plan is
to fix this using isoinfo plus some sort of libosinfo mapping
which isn't yet worked out.
To this end there is this bug:
plus we added isoinfo functions to libguestfs:
This bug was misfiled under the wrong 'Product' so it
wasn't really on my radar.
Since we added support for the libosinfo database, this
should just work. The libosinfo database does contain
some ia64 ISO image data, and there seems to be at least
one entry for a Win2k3 ia64 ISO. Of course I have no idea
or way of testing if it works.
So I guess this should either be marked fixed, or the
component changed to libosinfo. What do you think?
The libosinfo data will be for the iso I mentioned in the first comment, so lets assume this is fixed
Closed per comment 3.
