A bunch of the "Thread continues ..." links aren't working in issue #178.

Also, it seems my name no longer appears in the list of mailbag contributors, and hasn't done for a while now. Not for many issues. I don't -think- I've changed my name, although at the weekends... :)

Not sure if it is normal to send a talkback to my own article, but here it is:

I have gotten a couple of comments/notes since my article "Common problems when trying to install Windows on KVM with vir-manager" came out related to tip #2 (turning off selinux). Yes, I understand it's recommended that selinux stay turned on in 'enforcing' mode in Fedora. Yet, if I do this, I get the following error when trying to startup the virtual machine using a SDL virtual display.

Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/engine.py", line 878, in run_domain vm.startup() File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/domain.py", line 1321, in startup self._backend.create() File "/usr/lib64/python2.6/site-packages/libvirt.py", line 333, in create if ret == -1: raise libvirtError ('virDomainCreate() failed', dom=self) libvirtError: operation failed: failed to retrieve chardev info in qemu with 'info chardev'

As a 'somewhat reasonably' :-) responsible member of the Fedora community, I have filed a bug on Red Hat's bugzilla about it ( https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=635328). Until that is resolved, or someone else is able to show me another way to get sound working on such a VM, I stand by my tip to turn off selinux.
