SPICE driver crash when upgrading system
Last modified: 2013-01-09 07:10:03 EST
Description of problem:
After upgrading systemd system powers off/crashes.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
systemd 188-3 upgraded to 194-1
upgrade systemd on the f18 alpha live cd
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run f18 aplha in kvm: $ kvm -m 1024 -usb -usbdevice tablet -net nic,model=virtio -net tap,ifname=tap0,script=no,downscript=no -vga qxl -cdrom Fedora-18-Alpha-i686-Live-Desktop.iso
2. log in as live user and open a root terminal
3. yum install systemd
system keeps running with new systemd
Have more information on how/why it crashed? Was it a clean shutdown? Did the guest kernel crash?

upgrading systemd from serial console
Upgrading systemd from console does not cause the system to crash.
It seems gdm restarts, however.
Upgrading systemd in virtualbox brings 'sad mac' screen but both the system and the session keeps running.

Looks like a problem in the Spice module of KVM/qemu, judging by #2. Reassigning to qemu.
