Description Sitsofe Wheeler 2015-02-20 11:23:06 UTC
Description of problem:
It is not possible to boot the cloud image when using VMware Fusion 7 as a host.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Reproducible every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download the Fedora cloud image ( ).
2. Convert the raw disk to a VMDK (e.g.
qemu-img convert -O vmdk -o adapter_type=lsilogic Fedora-Cloud-Base-20141203-21.x86_64.raw Fedora-Cloud-Base-20141203-21.x86_64.vmdk
3. Create a new VM and ensure the disk type is set to SCSI (VMware Fusion 7.1.1).
4. Boot the VM. 

Actual results:

Expected results:
VM to finish booting.

Additional info:
Closer inspection shows the issue is because the "disk" requires the "Fusion MPT SPI Host" driver which isn't present in the base cloud image but is part of the kernel-modules package. If you can somehow get the kernel-modules RPM into the image and then rerun dracut this problem goes away.

OK.  I've moved the modules into kernel-core on f21-rawhide.  Should be in the next build of each.

Comment 4 Sitsofe Wheeler 2015-03-04 16:34:30 UTC
This seems to be fixed:
# cat /sys/block/sda/device/subsystem/devices/host0/scsi_host/host0/subsystem/host32/proc_name
# lsmod | grep mptspi
mptspi                 22552  0 
mptscsih               38664  1 mptspi
mptbase               103883  2 mptspi,mptscsih
scsi_transport_spi     30176  1 mptspi
# rpm -ql kernel-core | grep mpt

This looks fixed to me!
