disconnect() method of spice-xpi does not kill client
Last modified: 2016-05-31 21:31:13 EDT
Description of problem:
disconnect() method of spice-xpi does not kill client - it continues to run.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. from test page, connect client to spice server
2. switch to the web browser again
3. hit 'Disconnect' button
client keeps running
client is closed
In current state, we are not able to solve this in a reasonable way. Now we have alternatives, so /usr/libexec/spice-xpi-client points to 2 shell scripts, which run either spicec or remote-viewer. The problem is, that if I signal (by SIGTERM) spice-xpi-client, the client does not die -- caused by the structure of the script(s). The best solution could be: to signal a process group, where the parent is the mentioned spice-xpi-client.
Rhel 6.3 in current state suffers from a bug, where is is not able to signal a process group. I already filed that bug.
Moving to 6.4 for now:
First, it depend on https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_activity.cgi?id=815674;
and second, spice devel is focusing on virt-vierwer as the spicec replacement.
