oVirt gerrit 99072 'None' MERGED build: replacing ovirt-guest-agent with qemu-guest-agent, space saving 2020-03-31 13:03:17 UTC

Description Sandro Bonazzola 2019-02-05 17:24:43 UTC
Replace dependency on ovirt-guest-agent with qemu-guest-agent.
oVirt Guest Agent has been deprecated in 4.3.0 and is being removed in 4.3.1 being its more important functionalities now included in QEMU Guest Agent.

Comment 1 Sandro Bonazzola 2019-02-06 15:40:06 UTC
Putting this on hold for now.

Comment 2 Sandro Bonazzola 2019-03-19 16:37:48 UTC
After all, ovirt-guest-agent is not going to be removed but kept for SSO function which is not needed in engine appliance.
We can still save some space by dropping the ovirt-guest-agent in favor of the qemu-guest-agent

Comment 3 John Florian 2020-01-01 19:35:07 UTC
This info needs additional exposure.  It took me about half an hour to find this to explain why ovirt-guest-agent-common can no longer be installed on Fedora 31.  Seems like this might also have warranted an "Obsoletes: ovirt-guest-agent-common" in qemu-agent or something like that to make the transition automatic, ideally with the news.  I did self-discover the qemu-agent package on F31 and wondered if this might be a replacement but it was only my thinking that perhaps there was a packaging bug in F31 that led to its omission that was or needed to be reported which got me here to an actual understanding.
