Description Cybertimber2011 2012-06-14 18:38:29 EDT
Description of problem:
Node (2.4.0-0.0.fc17 & 2.4.0-1.0.fc17) reports:
Virtualization hardware is unavilable.
(Virtualization hardware was detected but is disabled)

Cybertimber2009> Any fix in there for the system saying virtualization hardware was found but disabled? I checked my BIOS and it is enabled.
<Cybertimber2009> mburns, no worries man.
<RobertM> Cybertimber2009, I say that one myself but couldn't repeat
<@mburns> Cybertimber2009: afaik, that works correctly, but i don't have real hardware to test with at the moment
<Cybertimber2009> Ok.  I'll check it out once the download finishes. Give me a few :) I
<@mburns> Cybertimber2009: did you see that on the tui? or login screen? or both?
<Cybertimber2009> Login screen
<@mburns> Cybertimber2009: hmm
<@mburns> sgordon: not me
<@mburns> Cybertimber2009: looks like a bug
<Cybertimber2009> mburns, Was someone else able to confirm the same? I wasn't sure if it was isolated to my hardware or not.
<@mburns> Cybertimber2009: i confirmed in code
<@mburns> Cybertimber2009: patch was submitted to remove our dependency on libvirt running in ovirt-post
<@mburns> and we replaced virsh capabilities with a call to systemd-detect-virt
<Cybertimber2009> mburns, ahh. Well it's nothing bad if it's just a message. I assume it will still work (run VMs) though right?
<@mburns> but it was a misunderstanding of what that script does
<@mburns> Cybertimber2009: yes, should work fine

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
2.4.0-0.0.fc17 & 2.4.0-1.0.fc17

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Node 2.4.0
2. Reboot
3. Stop at Login screen
Actual results:
oVirt Node reports that virtualization hardware is unavailable.

Expected results:
If virtualization hardware is detected, no message.
If virtualization hardware is not available or disabled, show a message.

change to not depend on libvirt introduced this regression.  systemd-detect-virt detects if you're running in a vm, not if you're capable of running a vm.
