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