Re: qemu not supporting live snapshots

Hello!

Now I'm confronting another beast. I have a new server and installed Centos 7.5 1804 and proceeded to install the KVM stuff and after executing this command:

Code: Select all

yum install centos-release-qemu-ev

yum install qemu-kvm-ev
I was given this message

Code: Select all

http://mirror.centos.org/altarch/7/virt/x86_64/kvm-common/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 14] HTTP Error 404 - Not Found
And looking into the repository the x86_64 doesn exist but another named aarch64 which contains all the rpm and stufff.

What is going on here?

It worked previously on a Centos 7.4 server.

Thanks for a much need help on this matter.

Mauricio

You've been bitten by another bug that's in the process of being fixed. Edit /etc/yum/vars/contentdir and if it says 'altarch', change it to 'centos'.
CentOS 5 died in March 2017 - migrate NOW!
