Recently upgraded my centOS 7 host, and was giving this error after trying
to start the guest VM with virt-manager from my desktop:

"Error starting domain: Path '/usr/share/OVMF/OVMF_CODE.fd' is not
accessible, no such file or directory"

I was told on irc that the OVMF package is now part the base centOS repos,
so it replaced the installed OVMF package from the repo

As a quick workaround  to get the VM running again, i was able to do "yum
downgrade OVMF" which did:


  OVMF.noarch 0:20150414-2.gitc9e5618.el7

i'm sending this email to ask is there another file i should be using
instead of OVMF_Code.fd, for example was it replaced by something else that
i should be using ? or is there an issue somewhere else.
