dear lazyweb... two GNOME/Nautilus problems

There are exactly 2 annoying problems, in which I run from time to time, again and again, but I never found a solution, and I didn't make the step to subscribe to some gnome users list to get them solved:

Not always, but quite often when I plug in a usb stick, then navigate through it with Gnome's Nautilus File manager, I cannot unmount it anymore.
When clicking right on it, and selecting unmount in the context menu, I get a message saying "unmount failed - device is busy".

Fedora Core 8 VirtManager test

Another tool of which I tested a new version again: FC8 and VirtManager.

In general, VirtManager has gotten quite a bit better than the last version I tested (on FC6), but it still hase some annoyances to offer.

As nowadays(other than the last test), together with these annoyances come some very interesting features, especially managing qemu(+kqemu) and kvm (via qemu interface) instances in one single gui - now, my overall impression is, that it is a very interesting tool that can be recommended to fedora and GUI-Lovers, I think.

A deeper look at Google Ganeti

In the past few days, I got a deeper look in google ganeti, and asked many questions on their google group.

First, I got the impression that some things are not well working and lead to deadlocks and situations where you cannot start virtual instances anymore.

But it turned out to be all a matter of using the gnt-instance activate-disks command at the right place, using --force with the gnt-instance startup command, and --ignore-consistency when doing a failover...
