Install this patch if you use CD-ROMs in virtual machines.



Problem description

If virt-manager was used to dynamically attach a CD-ROM to a fully virtualized OS, the OS would see a hard disk instead of a CD-ROM. This version of virt-manager correctly attaches CD-ROMs to virtual machines.
virt-manager now also allows the virtualized CD media (such as ISO files) to be changed easily.
