Import Appliance option seems to ignore OSType="Fedora" -> Fixed in SVN

Reported by: malan Owned by:
Priority: minor Component: OVF
Version: VirtualBox 3.2.6 Keywords: OSType Fedora
Cc: Guest type: Linux
Host type: Mac OS X

Description

If you export an appliance that was configured as running "Fedora" (not 64-bit) and then import it (after deleting the virtual media from the original), the import process seems to ignore the OVF file's mention of OSType="Fedora", instead defaulting to "Linux 2.6". Result is that import process seems not to take into account OS-specific defaults (e.g., video memory).

AFAIK Fedora is not included in OVF specification, so it resets to "Linux".

but things such as Video Memory should be saved somewhere...

Thanks for the follow-up. Quite fair, but OSType="Fedora" appears to be an attribute of an element in the vbox: namespace (and not in the OVF envelope itself), in which case I assume it's there precisely so that VirtualBox can infer OS type?

  • Summary changed from Import Appliance option seems to ignore OSType="Fedora" to Import Appliance option seems to ignore OSType="Fedora" -> Fixed in SVN

Should be fixed by the next major version. You have to export the VM again to make it work.
