Handle disconnections exposed by spice-gtk
Last modified: 2012-07-27 04:08:18 EDT
Description of problem:
Handle disconnections exposed by spice-gtk. See the blocking bug for details.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Maybe a bit more info would be helpful. So in remote-viewer mode, an error pop-up should be created saying what went wrong.
I'm not really sure what should happen when in virt-viewer mode (imagine one virt-viewer running, another one connecting to the same VM and stealing its desktop, first one detecting disconnect and thus reconnecting and taking display back and so forth...).
I don't really see that there is anything that needs doing here. virt-viewer & remote-viewer already handles guest disconnect messages from spice-gtk. By default they will exit unless the --reconnect flag was given, in which case they try to reconnect to the desktop
This request was not resolved in time for the current release.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if still desired, for consideration in
the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
This request was erroneously removed from consideration in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4, which is currently under development. This request will be evaluated for inclusion in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4.
Please provide more info on why current behaviour is wrong as per comment #2
Seen with from a bit of distance, it looks like proposed changes solve the problem of tcp stream disruption only partialy if there is no heartbeat in spice protocol, so closing it myself as wontfix...
