    Add manpage docs for the --attach option

Comment 4 yuping zhang 2012-04-19 02:49:31 UTC
Verified this issue with:
# rpm -q virt-viewer

#man virt-viewer
       -a, --attach
           Use libvirt to directly attach to a local display, instead of making a TCP/UNIX socket connection. This avoids the need to
           authentication with the remote display, if authentication with libvirt is already allowed.  This option does not work with remote

So change the bug status to VERIFIED.
