Bug Description

Line 85 of euca-register calls register_image, which requires one positional parameter, with none.

def register_image(self, name, description=None, image_location=None,
                       architecture=None, kernel_id=None, ramdisk_id=None,
                       root_device_name=None, block_device_map=None):

Please see:

The current euca2ools head is compatible with boto-1.8d. euca-register won't work with boto-1.9b. I suspect the boto upstream will fix this in the next release of boto.

The issue is due to an incorrectly documented API call in the EC2 API, which indicates that "Name" is a required parameter, although it obviously breaks backwards compatibility for images that do not boot from EBS.

Forgot to add that the workaround for this is to use boto-1.8d until the next version of boto is released. Although it is trivial to fix euca-register to set name to 'None' it would be best if the underlying problem were fixed.

So is euca-register completely broken in lucid?
looking just at source, I don't see how it can work, and we obviously need it to.

I requested a backport of the fix for Fedora. Maybe it would be wise to do the same for Ubuntu.

smoser: I think it's a duplicate of bug 504530, which we already handled.

Garrett, thanks for filing the bug against Fedora. Just as a heads up, there might be other outstanding incompatibilities between euca2ools-1.1 and boto-1.9b. The last stable version when euca2ools-1.1 was released was boto-1.8d and the Eucalyptus upstream has not fully tested euca2ools against boto-1.9b. Please let us know if other issues crop up.

I believe Ubuntu has already patched boto in Lucid.
