Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 845807
No RHEVM package depends on rhevm-spice-client* RPMs, therefore they are not implicitly installed as part of RHEVM installation.
Last modified: 2015-09-22 09:09 EDT
Description of problem:
None of the following packages is installed as part of 'yum install rhevm', so you don't get any of the spice client CABs or MSIs installed.
I'm not even sure if those actually deliver anything useful (shouldn't they be the new mingw virt-viewer based ones?), but bottom line is - no spice client delivery to the clients via RHEVM, which is a regression from 3.0.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. 'yum install rhevm' - no spice relevant packages are installed.

Currently no rhevm* package includes a dependency on the rhevm-spice-client* packages, which contain the SPICE clients. As a result the SPICE clients are not automatically installed during Manager installation, and are users of the User Portal are not automatically prompted to install them when accessing virtual machines.
To work around this issue, following successful Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager installation, log in as root and use the yum command to install the missing packages:
# yum install rhevm-spice-client\*
Verified on rhevm-3.1.0-14.el6ev.noarch
# yum deplist rhevm | grep spice-client
provider: rhevm-spice-client-x86-cab.noarch 3.1-4.el6
provider: rhevm-spice-client-x64-cab.noarch 3.1-4.el6
