1. Insert an operating system install CD into your computer
2. Open Boxes and click New
3. Click Continue and then try to select the install CD
- It's not really possible to select the physical CD
What should happen
- The CD should show up as an option above "Enter URL" or "Select a file"
This was reported at https://bugzilla.gnome.org/689938 and can be
fixed by simply having gnome-boxes depend on libosinfo-bin.
Personally, I think it's an RC bug if a VM app can't install a VM from
a physical CD so I'm marking this serious.
