Fixed In Version: spice-xpi-2.7-26.el6
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Prior to this update, certain spice-xpi properties were not recorded in the spice-xpi.log file. These properties were only displayed in the /var/log/messages file. With this update, spice-xpi has been modified to properly log reading or setting the "smartcard", "color-depth", "disable-effects", and "proxy" properties of the spice-xpi browser plug-in. As a result, these events are now visible in spice-xpi.log.

Description Jiri Belka 2014-01-07 15:49:36 UTC
Description of problem:
It was discovered that spice-xpi uses proxy even RHEVM had proxy option unchecked in Console options.

During troubleshooting there was no info about proxy in spice-xpi.log but in /var/log/messages SPICE_PROXY appeared (reality).

See BZ1049475 for logs...

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. RHEVM: define proxy, restart  engine, open console while proxy is unchecked
2. compare spice-xpi.log with /var/log/messages for proxy info

Actual results:

Expected results:
if in fact proxy is used it should be visible in spice-xpi.log

Add a log when setting/getting proxy property

This patch should fixe this logging issue. Scratch build at http://brewweb.devel.redhat.com/brew/taskinfo?taskID=6824710

Comment 3 Christophe Fergeau 2014-01-08 11:01:20 UTC
Note that in rhel 7, there will be no spice-xpi.log. remote-viewer will log debug messages (enable with G_MESSAGES_DEBUG=all) with the controller properties it received.
