Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1311612
virt-manager no longer displays console screen from older systems
Last modified: 2016-03-03 12:55:05 EST
Description of problem:
In my 'rawhide' setup I'm access remote machine running on RHEL6
ARM instead of console VNC screen I just get blank.
It might be related to these logged errors:
DEBUG (connection:803) Error registering domain device removed event: internal error unsupported event ID 15
DEBUG (connection:803) Error registering domain device added event: internal error unsupported event ID 19
DEBUG (connection:829) Error registering network events: unknown procedure: 313
I've even tried to downgrade to: virt-manager-1.2.1-3.fc23.noarch
but no success to get again console working - so possibly I'd need to
downgrade libvirt as well ?
Not really sure what's the real cause here - so feel free to relocate to right package.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
This is a virt-manager + gtk3-3.19.9 issue. I've filed gtk regression bug, not sure where the final blame will fall.
Ohhh 'great victory' then :)
I'm already using libgtk-3.so.0.1800.6 for preload when using firefox nightly, so 'virt-manager' is now just another user :)
(using export LD_LIBRARY_PATH...)
So yep - with the gtk3 it works again, thanks for quick advice.
So gtk got a workaround for cases like these
at the cost of a runtime warning, which I guess should be addressed in virt-manager code ?
(virt-manager:25122): Gtk-WARNING **: Drawing a gadget with negative dimensions. Did you forget to allocate a size?

Thanks for the info Yanko! So looks like this will be in gtk 3.19.11, moving to gtk3. I'll look at trying to fix the virt-manager side to avoid the warning when I update to f24
I should note that this applies to F24 hosting F24, not just older osen. It also hits a beta release criteria: The release must be able host virtual guest instances of the same release. I'll be nominating it here directly.
Proposed as a Blocker for 24-beta by Fedora user jdulaney using the blocker tracking app because:
The release must be able host virtual guest instances of the same release.
This bug is causing the virt-manager console to not correctly display. As virt-manager is considered part of Fedora's recommended virt stack, this bug meets this criteria.
fixed in 3.19.11
