Description Marc-Andre Lureau 2012-03-01 11:13:36 EST
Legacy USB redirection support requires "foreign menu" support.

Virt-viewer needs to serve a "foreign menu" socket in order for the old usb redirection client-side to start correctly in rhel6, and to allow switching redirected devices with the "foreign menu".

virt-viewer upstream has the necessary bits, and should fix that bug with the upcoming 0.5.2 release.

I cannot get enough information from comments in this bug. So I'm not sure how to test this bug. Please provide me some more details so I can get clear what should I do for this bug. Thanks.

This menu is visible on build virt-viewer-0.5.2-1.el6.x86_64, but bug 758645 and bug 758104 are not verified. I cannot test its function now.
