Re: [Libguestfs] Need Help



Hello Richard,
One more question, you mentioned that "hot plugging" is supported from CentOS 7 and gave me a link. That link says

 "In libguestfs ≥ 1.20, you may add drives and remove after calling"guestfs_launch". There are some restrictions, see below. This is calledhotplugging."

When I executed "sudo yum install libguestfs-tools" on CentOS 6.5, it installed libguestfs 1.20.11. So if we fix the current qemu issue  then can we use "hotplugging" in CentOS 6.5? Do you see some other issues? Do you recommend CentOS 7 only for the "hotplugging"?

Many Thanks for all your help.

Thanks Richard,
I have asked CentOS and qemu mailing list about this issue and waiting for their reply. 

 It is really strange that on CentOS 6.4 VM, atleast qemu was wokring but  in higher version "6.5" it is not working.

That command is the way you're supposed to fix this problem.  If it
doesn't work then I don't know -- perhaps ask on a CentOS or qemu list,
or open a bug against CentOS?
