QEMU guest doesn't start with no CD in the drive

Bug #242434 reported by Sense Egbert Hofstede on 2008-06-23
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
virt-manager (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: qemu

I've got a virtual Ubuntu Server installed with virt-manager. I intended to use KVM, but I'm not sure whether KVM or QEMU is used at the moment. My system does support KVM.

When I installed the system I had the Ubuntu Server installation CD in the virtual CD/DVD drive, which is probably not a surprise. But now I haven't done that anymore and the server isn't running. When I tried to start it manually in virt-manager I got this traceback:
"Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/engine.py", line 480, in run_domain
  File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/domain.py", line 379, in startup
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/libvirt.py", line 240, in create
    if ret == -1: raise libvirtError ('virDomainCreate() failed', dom=self)
libvirtError: virDomainCreate() failed QEMU quit during console startup
qemu: could not open disk image /dev/scd0"
