Description Andrei Stepanov 2015-08-25 05:55:41 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.
