Set up Qemu&Spice USB Redirection support on Ubuntu 11.10 (Oneiric)

************************************************************************************************************************
UPDATE on 10/14/2011. Works on final release Ubuntu 11.10 . View also Set up Qemu&Spice&Libvirt 0.9.6 USB Redirection on Ubuntu 11.10
************************************************************************************************************************

Following bellow is attempt to reproduce Hans de Goede blog entry at http://planet.spice-space.org/ on Ubuntu 11.10 with intent to build Qemu-kvm 0.15.0 with usb redirection network support per http://planet.spice-space.org/ via git repository git://people.freedesktop.org/~jwrdegoede/qemu :-

$ git clone git://people.freedesktop.org/~jwrdegoede/qemu
$ cd qemu
$ git checkout -B qemu-kvm-0.15.0-usbredir origin/qemu-kvm-0.15.0-usbredir
$ git log|more

Spice-Gtk-0.7.4X has been built up on current snapshot of git://anongit.freedesktop.org/spice/spice-gtk to obtain Spice-Gtk with usb redirection support working stable with Spice 0.9.1. Build done on Ubuntu Oneiric.Packaged version version of Spice-Gtk-0.7.4X is built up on mentioned git repository with GTK2 and GTK3 as two sets of packages. Details may be viewed here .
Libusb-1.0-2:1.0.9-3ubuntu9 is built up on git://people.freedesktop.org/~jwrdegoede/libusb (pre 1.0.9). Usbredir-0.3.1-1ubuntu5 is built up on official release usbredir-0.3.1.tar.gz.
*********************************************************************************************************************
Running autogen.sh with exported environment variable NOCONFIGURE allows to perform it in one build per Debian’s Spice-Gtk-0.7-3 building schema.It has been already done as well. View:-
Spice-Gtk-0.7.46-314c been built per debian’s 0-7.3 schema
*********************************************************************************************************************

Currently two PPAs are ready to go :
1. Set up Qemu&Spice USB Redirection on Ubuntu 11.10 (Oneiric) v.1
2. Set up Qemu&Spice USB Redirection on Ubuntu 11.10 (Oneiric) v.2
*****************************
To install packages from PPA
*****************************
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:bderzhavets/lib-usbredir16
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install qemu-kvm qemu qemu-common \
spice-client seabios \
libusb-1.0-0 libusb-1.0-0-dev \
libusbredir libusbredir-dev \
libspice-protocol-dev libspice-server-dev \
libspice-client-glib-2.0-4 libspice-client-glib-2.0-dev \

libspice-client-gtk-3.0-1 libspice-client-gtk-3.0-dev \
python-spice-client-gtk spice-client-gtk

To install Livbirt and virtinst tools :-

$ sudo apt-get install virtinst virt-manager virt-viewer

You might have to disable apparmor profile for libvirtd

$ sudo ln -s /etc/apparmor.d/usr.sbin.libvirtd /etc/apparmor.d/disable/
$ sudo apparmor_parser -R /etc/apparmor.d/usr.sbin.libvirtd
$ sudo adduser $USER kvm

Qemu-kvm debian/rules contains:-

./configure \
--target-list="x86_64-softmmu i386-softmmu x86_64-linux-user i386-linux-user" \
--prefix=/usr \
--interp-prefix=/etc/qemu-binfmt/%M \
--disable-blobs \
--disable-strip \
--enable-spice \
--enable-usb-redir \
$(conf_arch)

Spicy should be run by root, view http://planet.spice-space.org/. Make sure you’ve done on server

$ sudo apt-get install ipxe

Per Hans de Goede :-
Select the options menu entry and make sure that the “auto redirect newly plugged in USB devices” option is checked. After this make sure the vm has keyboard focus (so close the options menu), plug in a new USB device and watch it show up in your vm



Connection to remote KVM Spice enabled Server with USB Redirection on Oneiric :-



Copy from USB pen to remotely running qemu-kvm VM via spicy session issued by root on local box



Normal guest start via qemu-kvm with enabled usb redirection looks like :-
boris@boris-System-P5Q3:~$ sudo /usr/bin/kvm -cpu host -enable-kvm \
> -name VF15HQ -m 2048 \
> -drive file=/dev/sdb5,if=virtio,media=disk,aio=native,cache=off \
> -net nic,model=virtio -net user -localtime \
> -usb -vga qxl -spice port=5900,disable-ticketing \
> -device virtio-serial \
> -chardev spicevmc,id=vdagent,name=vdagent \
> -device virtserialport,chardev=vdagent,name=com.redhat.spice.0 \
> -readconfig /etc/qemu/ich9-ehci-uhci.cfg \
> -chardev spicevmc,name=usbredir,id=usbredirchardev1 \

KVM itself may run ( via qemu command line) on any Oneiric box on the LAN with Qemu-kvm 0.15.0 with usb network redirection support (say address IP01).Spice-Gtk-0.7.46 should be installed on your local machine. Then run :-

# spicy -h IP01 -p 5900

Plug in USB pen on local box . It will be opened in Spicy session with remote qemu-kvm process.

Libvirt 0.9.6 is required to avoid qemu command line vm start and managing VMs via virsh XML definitions, what consequently allows to start VMs via virt-manager. Current version of libvirt in Oneiric is 0.9.2. I am not sure what version of libvirt will be choosed for Precise (12.04).Debian Unstable already contains 0.9.6.

Fedora 15 KVM running native spice-vdagent started via qemu command line







Oneiric KVM running built for Ubuntu spice-vdagent started via qemu command line

    WoW! you did a great job friend…. by the way, why did you use qemu? why don’t you pick v-box?

    Thanks,
    Sincerely
