Add Storage Pool's Open dialog fails to add entered directory
Last modified: 2012-11-28 09:59:01 EST
Description of problem:
When adding directory as a storage pool, virtual-manager adds only directories selected not the ones entered. Workaround is to enter parent directory and select the one that should be the storage or enter the path manually. Of course, if the user notices open dialog failed. The described way of choosing directories works in other applications and used to work in former versions of virtual-manager.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
virt-manager-0.9.4-1.fc17.noarch run on x86_64
Steps to Reproduce:
1. mkdir ~/_storage
2. Edit-->Connection Details and click [+] AKA "Add Pool"
3. Chose Name: testpool, Type dir: Filesystem Directory and click [Forward]
4. Click [Browse], navigate to ~/_storage and click [Open]
First I thought it was the same issue as described in BZ#746014 but found out it was not related to the _ character.
Thanks for the report Miroslav.
Strange, gtk started disliking something we've done for years, though our code was crappy anyways. Fixed upstream:
virt-manager-0.9.4-2.fc17 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 17.
* should fix your issue,
* was pushed to the Fedora 17 testing repository,
* should be available at your local mirror within two days.
Update it with:
# su -c 'yum update --enablerepo=updates-testing virt-manager-0.9.4-2.fc17'
as soon as you are able to.
Please go to the following url:
then log in and leave karma (feedback).
virt-manager-0.9.4-2.fc17 is in stable now
