    Thnx for this stuff: just works !

    -> working spice, with winXP guest using spice-guest-tools-0.1.exe (http://spice-space.org/download/binaries/)

  2. Valérian says:

    Thanks for the ppa!

    Is it sync with the git repository ?
    I experience this bug https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=808936 and it seams fixed upstream

    > Is it sync with the git repository ?
    No. Build is based on :

    http://spice-space.org/download.html

    0.10.1 – stable release

    SPICE – Server spice-0.10.1.tar.bz2
    spice-protocol – headers defining protocols, spice-protocol-0.10.1.tar.bz2

  4. dbaxps says:

    I just built patched version of SPICE 0.10.1-5 ( per https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=808936 ) in PPA
    https://launchpad.net/~bderzhavets/+archive/lib-usbredir79/+packages

    Try attach this PPA to your system and upgrade SPICE. If it will work, I’ll copy new SPICE 0.10.1 to main PPA.

    hello,
    i try your PPA , but my xp vitrual machine is always black …

    if y try it with Fedora17 , qxl is fonctional….

    i note a difference , with ubuntu i need to sudo virt-manager , but with Fedora ….

  6. krominet says:

    i think that the problem is somewhere in package qemu-kvm-spice .
    i found it only in universe precise repository ….

  7. cki says:

    There seems to be a privilege problem. I did following:
    sudo chmod 770 /var/lib/libvirt/qemu
    I also added my user to kvm group. After that I could start virt-manager without sudo.
