Bug Description

virt-manager's "New Virtual Machine" window lists the following for Linux versions:

- Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise Pangolin)
- Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid Lynx)
- Ubuntu 8.04 LTS (Hardy Heron)

The bottom one is corrent, however the other two should have "LTS" after their version numbers as per the release versioning:


Attached is a screenshot of what I see.

virtinst/ still has just 10.04 listed, I'm afraid.

Drat. Thanks. I'm afraid this will have to wait for precise-proposed to open.

Changed in virtinst (Ubuntu Quantal):
status: In Progress → Fix Released

SRU request.

Impact: Lucid isn't shown as an LTS release in virt-manager. Also, Quantal is not in the list of installable versions.

Developement fix: This was fixed in Quantal by updating the patch to add Quantal, and LTS to Lucid.

Stable fix: a minimal debdiff was prepared with the same updated patch as the Quantal.

Test case:
1- open virt-manager
2- create a new vm
3- make sure "Quantal" is in the list, and Lucid is listed as LTS

Regression potential:
I can't think of any possible regression with this simple fix.

Hello Jonathan, or anyone else affected,

Accepted virtinst into precise-proposed. The package will build now and be available in a few hours. Please test and give feedback here. See for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you in advance!
