Bug Fix Advisory virt-manager bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2008:0198-4
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2008-04-10
Last updated on: 2008-04-10
Affected Products: RHEL Desktop Multi OS (v. 5 client)
RHEL Virtualization (v. 5 server)
RHEL Virtualization EUS (v. 5.1.z server)

Details

An updated virt-manager package that fixes a bug is now available.

The Virtual Machine Manager application is a desktop user interface for
managing virtual machines.

The recent dbus security errata, RHSA-2008:0159, constrained the ways in
which D-Bus objects can be called. This prevented virt-manager from
speaking to the HAL to obtain information about host network and disk
devices. For example, when creating a new guest, no network devices were
listed when the shared physical device option was selected. As well, this
may have prevented CD-ROM devices from being listed. In this updated
package, virt-manager has been adapted to use an alternative way to call
HAL APIs, which resolves this issue.

Users of virt-manager are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which
resolves this issue.


Solution

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released
errata relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via Red Hat Network. Details on how to use
