Description of problem:

Spoke with Cole about this, but the request is to make virt-manager archful so archs that don't have full spice support can still have virt-manager.
Comment 1 Daniel Berrange 2013-06-19 10:22:39 EDT
The ExclusiveArch statement from the spice-gtk RPM was removed quite a while ago, so it should be available on all architectures. As such I don't see that spice is a reason to make virt-manager arch-ful.
Comment 2 Cole Robinson 2013-06-19 10:42:40 EDT
spice.spec still has:

ExclusiveArch:  i686 x86_64 armv6l armv7l armv7hl

But indeed I see spice-gtk built successfully in ppc-koji, so virt-manager should at least install correctly. Though the virt-manager default would be wrong in that case, but that's a minor issue.

Brent, what issue where you seeing?
Comment 3 Daniel Berrange 2013-06-19 10:50:51 EDT
virt-manager doesn't depend on the 'spice' RPM though - that's the server side and legacy client code. It depends on 'spice-gtk' which is cross-platform.

$ grep Exclusive spice-gtk.spec 
- Remove ExclusiveArch. While spice-gtk will build on ARM and PPC, it
