virt-manager should %ifarch spice support
Last modified: 2014-06-23 20:19:03 EDT
Description of problem:
The spice-gtk package is only available on x86/x86_64, and so this prevents virt-manager from being installable on other architectures such as ppc64.
Since spice support is only a define in the virt-manager spec, it should be ifarch'd to only be enabled on architectures where spice-gtk is available.
Patch attached has been tested to build, and the resulting virt-manager RPM does not require spice-gtk:
[dwa@ppc-hub task_485663]$ rpm -q --requires -p virt-manager-0.9.1-2.dwa.fc17.noarch.rpm | grep spice

Correct spec file patch
Realized I had attached an older version of the patch (mis-capitalized %ifarch).
virt-manager-0.9.1-3.fc17 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 17.
* should fix your issue,
* was pushed to the Fedora 17 testing repository,
* should be available at your local mirror within two days.
Update it with:
# su -c 'yum update --enablerepo=updates-testing virt-manager-0.9.1-3.fc17'
as soon as you are able to.

then log in and leave karma (feedback).
virt-manager-0.9.1-3.fc17 has been pushed to the Fedora 17 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
The spice-gtk-python package dependency is no longer being pulled in for x86_64. See bug 819270
Have to reopen this, as mentioned in Comment #6. Basically there is no way for a noarch package to have dependencies conditional on the install architecture.
In RHEL we fixed this by making virt-manager archful, but honestly I'm not motivated to do that here. The correct solution would be to have spice get it's act together and make itself available itself on ppc.
Closing this as a dup of the spice ExclusiveArch bug
