Qemu-kvm 1.0 & Spice 0.10.0 & Spice-Gtk-0.7.81 USB redirection for Ubuntu Precise, Oneiric and Linux Mint 12 (Lisa)

Following bellow is attempt to reproduce Hans de Goede blog entry at http://planet.spice-space.org/ on Ubuntu 12.04 and 11.10 with intend to build Qemu-kvm 1.0 with usb redirection network support per http://planet.spice-space.org/. Current build qemu-kvm for Ubuntu Precise is based on branch http://cgit.freedesktop.org/~jwrdegoede/qemu/. View similar PPA for Ubuntu Oneiric and Linux Mint 12 (Lisa) Qemu-kvm 1.0 & Spice 0.10.0 & Spice-Gtk-0.7.81 USB redirection and Libvirt 0.9.7-2 for Ubuntu Oneiric(v.6).Spice-Gtk-0.7.81 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 0.10.0. Builds have been done on Ubuntu Precise and Oneiric as well.Packaged version version of Spice-Gtk-0.7.81 is built up on mentioned git repository. 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, however requiring several updates to debian/control and debian/rules due to snapshots have to be done from current git tree.Upgrade version of Libvirt up to 0.9.7-2 allows to avoid using “qemu” command line (libvirt 0.9.2) and follow http://planet.spice-space.org/ update VM’s XML profile under /etc/libvirt/qemu/ as suggested in second blog entry of Hans de Goede.

$ git clone git://people.freedesktop.org/~jwrdegoede/qemu
$ cd qemu
$ git checkout -B qemu-kvm-1.0-usbredir origin/qemu-kvm-1.0-usbredir
$ cd ..
$ cp -R qemu qemu-kvm-1.0-usbredir

Intermediate release :-

http://cgit.freedesktop.org/~jwrdegoede/qemu/log/?h=qemu-kvm-1.0-usbredir

clearly demonstrates that all usb redirection patches won’t be in Qemu-kvm 1.0 release

Libusb build is based on libusb-1.0.9-rc3 official package
Qemu-kvm 1.0 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)

VirtFS support is available.

Upgrade version of Libvirt up to 0.9.7 allows to avoid using “qemu” command line (libvirt 0.9.2) and follow http://planet.spice-space.org/ update VM’s XML profile under /etc/libvirt/qemu/ as suggested in second blog entry of Hans de Goede (September 09, 2011):-
Change the first line from: <domain type=’kvm’> to:
<domain type=’kvm’ xmlns:qemu=’http://libvirt.org/schemas/domain/qemu/1.0′&gt;
And add the following lines at the end, above the “</domain>” line:
<qemu:commandline>
<qemu:arg value=’-readconfig’/>
<qemu:arg value=’/etc/qemu/ich9-ehci-uhci.cfg’/>
<qemu:arg value=’-chardev’/>

    To start default network :-

    sudo virsh net-start default
    sudo virsh net-autostart default

    If you copy and paste , then copy from HTML page not from from screen output of PPA description.

  5. I’m getting errors trying to get to your ppa … did you take it offline or move the files?

  6. dbaxps says:

    No , I didn’t. What happens exactly ? Is it for precise or for oneiric ?

  7. dbaxps says:

    I’ve just made install on fresh Oneiric instance. No problems.
    I need a detailed bug report. You could submit it to me via
    Launchpad.

  8. dbaxps says:

    Install tested via
    $ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:bderzhavets/lib-usbredir38
    with no problems on Precise daily build 12/06/11.
    All files are in place. To be able support you I need detailed bug report.

  9. when I try to update my list I get ….

    and I’m running Mint 12 64bit what else do you need?

  10. dbaxps says:

    Send me via email ( bderzhavets@yahoo.com)
    1. Output :-

    $ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:bderzhavets/lib-usbredir38

    If it’s correct , then file bug against toolchain at Launchpad.
    I did test on Mint 12 (64 bit) with no problems. But , in general, it
    should be Oneiric, they might change policy.
    Steve was able to attach ppa, he did mistake latter ( first comment)
    This discussion should be brought to private. I am not sure my public
    key gets imported

  11. dbaxps says:

    In particular , last summer I had following problem @Launchpad :-
    View my PPA :-

    https://launchpad.net/~bderzhavets/+archive/test-deb2

    . . . . . . . .

  12. dbaxps says:

    Oops !
    Read carefully post one more time and click on link for Oneiric PPA,
    then you will see, that you should run :-

    $ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:bderzhavets/lib-usbredir39

    This PPA is for Oneiric, 38-th for Precise

  13. alright … all better now …
    thanks for pointing out that I can’t read ;)
