Description: Graphical management app for virtual machines

This program is already in Fedora, but the upstream source package
has now been split up so it now needs to be in a separate package.

rpmlint is clean.
Comment 1 Richard W.M. Jones 2008-05-01 15:46:39 EDT

This package has undergone some bitrot since I added it, so as of this
comment, I've put it back into needinfo of me to check it still works.

Spec URL:

* Mon May 19 2008 Richard W.M. Jones <> - 1.0.0-3
- Use RPM percent-configure.
- Fix po/ and po/POTFILES.
- Add list of BRs for ocaml-gettext.
- Use find_lang to find PO files.
- Comment out OCaml dependency generator (not a lib, not needed).
- Check it builds in Koji.

This is rpmlint-clean.

Koji scratch build of this version:
Comment 3 Nicolas Chauvet (kwizart) 2008-05-28 07:13:57 EDT
While testing build for F-8 I have some dependencies missing.
DEBUG  No Package Found for ocaml-gettext-devel >= 0.3.0
DEBUG  No Package Found for ocaml-lablgtk-devel >= 2.10.0
DEBUG  No Package Found for ocaml-dbus-devel >= 0.06

This makes me wonder if we can use this package for F-8 as F-9 doesn't has a
Dom0 kernel-xen yet (unless re-introducted recently)?
Maybe this package is targeted for EL-5 ?
 (I could test using CentOS5 in this case)
Comment 4 Richard W.M. Jones 2008-06-02 05:46:14 EDT
Unfortunately it's not straightforward to backport this package to F-8.
Lablgtk / Gtk has added new features and we rely on Gtk >= 2.10.0.
Possibly when this package has been reviewed, I will add a big patch
to hack out the parts which need Gtk >= 2.10 just for F-8.

I strongly suggest you look at virt-manager (
Not only is virt-manager currently much more featureful, but it's also
available right now in F-8.
Comment 5 David Woodhouse 2008-11-02 07:46:20 EST
Package looks sane, meets review requirements. Approved.
