Doc Text:
The SPICE client did not correctly handle an exception which was raised when trying to connect to a guest operating system with no running SPICE agent. Consequently, the SPICE client application terminated unexpectedly after the 30-second timeout. With this update, the SPICE client correctly handles this situation and successfully connects to the guest system without unnecessary waiting.

Description Marian Krcmarik 2012-02-10 08:06:38 EST
Description of problem:
Spice client crashed when connecting to a guest without spice-agent running with unhandled exception:
main: unhandled exception: vdagent timeout
The crash occurs after 30' timeout when Client tries to connect with spice-agent, This prevents to connect to a guest machine without spice-vdagent running (for example during installation of guest or to RHEL5 guests since It does not have spice-vdagent).
This is most likely fixed on RHEL6 spice-client.

spice-client-0.8.1-6

Always

Steps to Reproduce:
