Comment 4 Michal Skrivanek 2013-06-07 03:18:37 EDT
so we can change the bug title to a request for support of http paths in libvirt, if reporter agrees?
Comment 10 Ján Tomko 2013-06-24 09:01:15 EDT
Unfortunately this won't be trivial to implement in libvirt, since QEMU doesn't support http paths.

With SELinux enabled, it's libvirt that fails trying to label the image.
But if it's disabled, QEMU fails with this error:
qemu: could not load kernel '': No such file or directory

This bug was not selected to be addressed in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6. We will look at it again within the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 product.
Comment 19 Giuseppe Scrivano 2014-09-17 11:14:05 EDT
per comment 10, should this bug be cloned to QEMU?
Comment 25 Ján Tomko 2017-10-17 11:20:13 EDT
This has been open for years and there does not seem to be much demand for it.
