Default solaris virt-install patches

from conversation on #xen.... current Solaris virt-install patches attached.

Disclaimers :-)
This are informational only (e.g. not proposing they be applied)..
They still need cleanup etc.. These patches are what are in the
current solaris builds.
We are currently still working on the lastest version of virt-install.

For the interested, the source is generally available @ the following
until we move the gate on the other side of the firewall, you can
download the xvm specific source @
http://dlc.sun.com/osol/on/downloads/b77/xvm-src.tar.bz2
(where b77 is the OpenSolaris build).

You'll see the following dirs in there, libvirt, sunos, and urlgrabber
are hg gates, urlgrabber and xen are hg mq gates (long story)... :-)

libvirt.hg/
sunos.hg/
virtinst.hg/
urlgrabber.hg/
xen.hg/

Hi Mark,

It was a bit hard to read your patches because they weren't attached
with a text MIME-type. Renaming them as '*.txt' or '*.patch', or
reconfiguring your MUA should fix that.


mac-address-parse: Looks fine

use-virsh-console: Sensible patch

outgoing:
This patch seems to be corrupt in some way. A diff of a diff?

solaris-support:

Solaris puts the Python interpreter in /bin instead of /usr/bin. This
will break things on Linux so we should fix this so it can find the
Python interpreter along the path. No idea how to fix this with Python
but I'm sure there's a standard way involving 'env' or something similar.


The rest of the patch looks sensible. In general all this code needs
rewriting to support capabilities and the storage API (once that's in
libvirt), but for a fix now it's fine.


Rich.

Sorry about that.. :-(

I was in a rush, included that file by mistake..

No need to. We shouldn't be changing that. It's a bug on
our end (/bin can be a sym link to /usr/bin).

I applied the MAC address patch since that was trivial. The xm console
stuff we already fixed. Likewise the vncviewer changes should disappear
when you re-base, since we now use virt-viewer.

The other changes all basically look sane. Some of them are actually
needed on Linux too - eg switching to use capabilities API instead of
touching /proc or /sys.

I'd recommend moving the SunOS_installxargs method to the OSDistro.py
file in the SolarisOSDistro class just to keep it all in one place.
Simiarly I'd prefer to see the loopback mount/unmount stuff kept in the
ImageFetcher module directly rather than in util.py

Regards,
Dan.
