This is the core issue - you're giving the floppy a harddisk name
Yeah, I caught that :)

guest.disks.append(virtinst.VirtualDisk(device=virtinst.VirtualDisk.DEVICE_FLOPPY, path=floppy_path))
I think you'll need to at least give a device name.

libvirt fills in the bus, based on device name if you leave it out
The constructor signature for VirtualDisk is...

__init__(self, path=None, size=None, transient=False, type=None, device='dis
k', driverName=None, driverType=None, readOnly=False, sparse=True, conn=None, vo
lObject=None, volInstall=None, volName=None, bus=None)

Which field would I use for specifying the device name?
Just set


and  virtinst generated the device name

Scroll up a bit for my Python line I'm using, I did that :)

Seems like a bug in virtinst then. I'll write it up.


Actually this may be fixed upstream:

Can you try an upstream checkout?




Do you know when that is on schedule to be backported to F10 and/or EL 5? (Yes, I know F11 is out soon enough, but mainly I'm
interested in EL).

I typically do that with each release (i.e. upstream bugs get released for all OS's) but wasn't sure what the policy was for virtinst.
