cdrom & mac address support for kvm

Asked by Kaivalagi on 2008-04-06

There seems to be no support for either cdrom devices for guest OS installs or any allowance for mac address setup, when using kvm in Ubuntu Hardy 8.04?

There is a thread on Ubuntuforums here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=716387 where questions are being asked.

Could you shed some light on these aspects of Virt Manager and maybe post a message in the thread above to clear things up a little?

An "if and when" would suffice if this is a known shortcoming of the UI.

Other than these issues I find your work to have simplified the use of kvm a great deal and I thank you for that!

Regards,
Mark (kaivalagi)

In particular this comment by Daniel suggests using gksu:

 https://bugs.edge.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/virt-manager/+bug/196850/comments/6

Does that work for you?

Can you help with this problem?
