This request was not resolved in time for the current release.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if still desired, for consideration in
the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

rpm2cpio spice-server-0.12.0-12.el6_4.5.x86_64.rpm  | cpio -idmv

works fine, could you check the checksum/digest is same?

Could you give more precise instructions of what iso you downloaded or which yum repo etc? thanks

Thank you for following up. I am no longer seeing this issue with current versions of spice-server, specifically spice-server-0.12.4-6.el6_5.1.x86_64. Please feel free to close.
