Description Richard W.M. Jones 2013-04-10 05:03:18 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #948324 +++

Description of problem:

(Reported by Georg Troxler)

Inspection is supposed to ignore missing libosinfo database.
However the current code fails if it cannot open the database
which is not right.

See for example:

https://www.redhat.com/archives/libguestfs/2013-April/msg00016.html

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

libguestfs 1.20 & 1.21.

The way to reproduce this is to run inspection on an ISO
of an older operating system that doesn't use a universal
multiboot installer.  I'm using a Windows XP install disk:

$ virt-inspector -v en_windows_xp_professional_with_service_pack_3_x86_cd_x14-80428.iso
[...]
libguestfs: osinfo: /usr/share/libosinfo/db/oses: No such file or directory
[...]

F18 is end-of-life soon, not sure if this patch landed there but it should be in F19+, so closing.
