Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1256704
Feature req: exit with error in case of absence /dev/virtio-ports/com.redhat.spice.0
Last modified: 2016-11-03 23:42:29 EDT
Suppose host was somehow configured without spicevmc
Spice-vdagent exits silently without any notification
It is good to have somewhere info why spice-vdagent has failed to start.
strace shows me such info:
3685 stat("/dev/virtio-ports/com.redhat.spice.0", 0x7fff8c3c3e30) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
3685 exit_group(0) = ?
3685 +++ exited with 0 +++
Why retcode is 0? spice-vdagent failed to start.
