Description Tomáš Golembiovský 2018-04-18 13:54:39 UTC
In RHV 4.2 we rely on recent changes in QEMU-GA. To properly test and deliver the feature we need some of the features from 2.10. Would one of the following be possible?

1) perform rebase to 2.10 in RHEL 7.5; or

2) backport the necessary patches to 2.8. We need the following patches:

0a3d197a71 2017-04-04 | qga: Add 'guest-get-host-name' command
161a56a906 2017-04-19 | qga: Add 'guest-get-users' command
53c58e64d0 2017-04-19 | qga: Add `guest-get-timezone` command
e674605f98 2017-07-17 | qemu-ga: check if utmpx.h is available on the system
9848f79740 2017-07-14 | qemu-ga: add guest-get-osinfo command

optionaly also the following patches that fix the test-suite:

c28afa76c0 2017-07-14 | test-qga: pass environemnt to qemu-ga
339ca68bef 2017-07-14 | test-qga: add test for guest-get-osinfo

Comment 10 FuXiangChun 2018-07-26 05:20:25 UTC

You mentioned "qemu-ga: check if utmpx.h is available on the system" in comment0.
Could you tell me how to check if utmpx.h is available on the system? I only find this 2 files on system. And they aren't from qemu-guest-agent package. Thanks.

# find / -name utmpx*

Comment 11 Tomáš Golembiovský 2018-07-26 07:29:22 UTC
Hi, there is not much to verify there. The patch is there to make sure build does not fail. So if you already have an RPM then you can consider it as OK.

Comment 12 Tomáš Golembiovský 2018-07-26 07:35:17 UTC
I suggest you remove the mention of utmpx.h from the doc_text.

Comment 13 FuXiangChun 2018-07-27 07:31:22 UTC
Thanks Tomáš, Base on comment9 and comment11,  set this bug as verified.
