Description David Jaša 2013-05-27 12:23:28 EDT
Description of problem:
virtio-serial driver (vioser) can't be installed in win7 x32 running on f19 host

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
windows 7 32bit with latest updates
vioser.sys/inf/cat built on 2013/05/02 4:17PM
   (applies to 0.52 driver running on the same host as well)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. try to install the driver via some installer (or "update driver" of virtio-serial device - ... - have disk - choose .inf of this driver)

Actual results:
the driver is not used (resp. windows says that the driver cannot be used for that device)

Expected results:
driver works (resp. windows installs vioser without any problems)

Additional info:
I didn't try other windows versions, may be also affected
Comment 1 David Jaša 2013-05-28 08:14:42 EDT
After an update to qemu-kvm-1.4.2-2, I can see the virtio serial device among "system devices" in device manager, but vdagent-win still can't connect to the device...

When I run the same VM on RHEL 6 host, the vdagent works just fine.
Comment 2 David Jaša 2013-05-30 08:31:12 EDT
Even after updates, the bug still persists. vdagent.log repeats saying:
664::INFO::2013-05-30 11:44:16,653::run::***Agent started in session 1***
664::INFO::2013-05-30 11:44:16,653::log_version::

and vdservice.log says:

After the shutdown and fresh start, the agent starts just fine...
Comment 4 Arnon Gilboa 2013-05-30 09:09:34 EDT
seems like a known issue with vio-serial driver update, see bug 927941
