[RFE] requests spice-gtk build for RHEL
Last modified: 2011-12-06 10:06:20 EST
Description of problem:
From our virt-manager point of view, we need the spice-gtk built on RHEL desktop to make sure spice graphical interface could be accessed from virt-manager and virt-viewer .
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Since there isn't an exact spice-gtk component in BZ . So file this bug on spice-server first .
Since now it is late for 6.1 build to fix this problem, request to fix it on 6.2
I've tried to build spice-gtk from upstream git ( git://gitorious.org/spice-gtk/spice-gtk.git ) on my RHEL-nightly laptop. I needed to backport this stuff:
* gtk-introspection - included in build system, but not included in RHEL 6 builds:
* RHEL vala is stuck at 0.7 series and it isn't shipped:
EPEL vala is at 0.10.4:
so it would be necessary to update it o 0.11.7 and push it to RHEL
Maybe there was something more I didn't notice as I backported other packages to the system earlier.
These requirements are only needed when building from git, if you get a tarball, gobject-introspection is optional, and vala won't be needed since the tarball will contain the preprocessed .c files.
For what it's worth, I've prepared spice-gtk 0.6 packages for rawhide and epel6 which I hope to be able to push shortly (some time today or tomorrow). Vivian, would an EPEL package be enough for your testing for now?
It's being built on http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=3096144
There's now a spice-gtk build in 6.2, see https://brewweb.devel.redhat.com/packageinfo?packageID=32830
where to find spicy in rh el 6.2 beta?
Installed spice-gtk-0.6-2.el6.x86_64.rpm but
# rpm -ql spice-gtk
No spice-gtk-tools as in Fedora?
I see anyway that in spice-gtk-python-0.6-2.el6.x86_64.rpm there is the module to use spice inside virt-manager

> No spice-gtk-tools as in Fedora?
If you can not find spice-gtk-tools in any repository, you can get it by rebuilding spice-gtk source package.
Is there any particular reason why in current build setup for the new spice-gtk package as in 6.2 beta, spice-gtk-tools is not generated?
spice-gtk-tools is available from the "optional" 6.2 repository
