3. try a cd change from virsh

Expected results:

Can you try with libvirt-0.4.3 which was just released. I think I have
seens changes which could affect this,
there is an update for F-9 and one for F-8 in testing


Comment 2 cdmiller 2008-06-16 00:31:01 UTC
Ok, I installed libvirt 0.4.3, and fired up a kvm vm.  Attempting to change the
cd within virt-manager results in the following log entries for the vm:

eject cdrom
change cdrom path-to-iso-file

and the cd change does not work (still pointing to original iso file).  Using
just qemu (no libvirt) and issuing a change ide1-cd0 from qemu console does
work.  So it appears libvirt 0.4.3 is still not working for cdrom change with
qemu 0.9.1 / kvm 0.69.

Comment 3 Cole Robinson 2008-09-03 17:51:47 UTC
This should be fixed upstream now:;a=commit;h=b00e6252fe2779ba92050b3f431fe2c95ea73d74

New release will most likely be in time for f10 beta. Closing this as UPSTREAM.
