|Platform||Intel x86_64||OS||CentOS 7.3||OS Version||3.10.0-514.el7.x|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0012671: gmem.c:482: custom memory allocation vtable not supported|
|Description||When launching qemu, the following messages appeared:|
(process:3770): GLib-WARNING **: gmem.c:482: custom memory allocation vtable not supported
|Steps To Reproduce||[aaron@aaronlu ~]$ qemu-system-x86_64 |
(process:3848): GLib-WARNING **: gmem.c:482: custom memory allocation vtable not supported
|Additional Information||Upstream has a similar bug: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1360137, but it's said to be fixed in qemu-kvm-1.5.3-121.el7 while I already have qemu-kvm-1.5.3-126.el7.x86_64.|
|Tags||No tags attached.|
This appears to be a glib(-2) bug
I have filed this:
I'm having the exact same issue on a new CentOS 7 install (Everything ISO 1810) with applied updates after installing it.
Is there anyone who is about to fix this?
|Since CentOS is a rebuild of the sources used to build RHEL, nothing ever gets fixed by us. You need the fix to come from Redhat and be part of RHEL and once it is, it gets rebuilt for CentOS.|
Also, just noticed that the original complaint was about qemu-system-x86_64 and that is from an EPEL package not from qemu-kvm. The EPEL package does appear to be very very old.
qemu-system-x86.x86_64 2:2.0.0-1.el7.6 epel
That's true, the bug only occurs with qemu-system-x86.x86_64 2:2.0.0-1.el7.6 epel . Virt-manager and qemu-kvm are not affected by this.
Just tested on a fresh install and there qemu-kvm works nicely.
|Right. So please report that on bugzilla.redhat.com in the Fedora EPEL section as that's not a CentOS/RHEL package and would need EPEL to take action to fix it. Since the OP also says they were using the same package, I think this ticket can be closed.|
|Yes indeed. Thanks!|
