RBVM Bugs are now tracked on
- Unassigned Minor
Bug: VM names can be set to empty string. Cosmetic bug only.
- Fixed: r70 Major
Bug: For some reason, on VM power on, the os.read() call on the
monitor pseudoterminal blocks occasionally, causing the power on to
fail (and the KVM process to stay running) (removed use of PTYs)
- In progress (werdz)
Major Bug: VM powered on detection needs work, it should check
by MAC address and disk image name to try to detect when a VM power
on failure has occurred.
- Addressed a little in rev 70, still not quite there.
- This is happening at random again. Changed this from improvement
to major bug, and added some debug info to figure out why this
still isn't working 100% in r76.
- This seems to have stopped happening since power on detection
rules were relaxed (/proc timestamp checking was removed). Keep
an eye on it though.
- In progress
(lil_cain) Moderate Bug: Session cache should be cleared
when the system starts up, otherwise lock errors cause some
peoples' sessions to asplode.
- I believe I have this fixed, just waiting for werdz to review
Improvement: Logging and debug levels, etc, need to be cleaned
- Fixed: r66
Moderate Bug: If new VMs are created as root, the mode and
ownerships of the VM images under /var/lib/rbvm/images is completely
wrong - VM will refuse to start as the rbvm user can't read/write
- Fixed: r65
Improvement: Add extra columns (MAC, IP, status) to homepage.
- Fixed: r72
Improvement: Add hardware options to front end (NIC controller,
etc). Backend added in rev 70
- Fixed: r69
Improvement: Boot device selection
- Fixed: r73 Minor
Bug: Live boot device selection didn't interact with KVM properly
- Fixed: r75
Improvement: Add ACPI control (-no-acpi KVM cmd line option) to
KVM module and frontent.
- Invalid Moderate
Bug: IO performance sucks since a kernel update last week. Some
security patches for KVM were involved. Investigate.
- This turned out to be a misconfiguration on daniel. Not a bug in
the RBVM source code.
Critical Bug: Somebody forgot to turn Daniel back on after the
