Rebuild KVM/QEMU to support SPICE on Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty Narwhal)

Rebuild procedure of regular qemu-kvm package to support spice on Natty Narwhal follows bellow. It depends on all packages from ppa:serge-hallyn/spice2 except qemu-kvm-spice. New packages install spice enabled /usr/bin/qemu* binaries and graphical spice client. I just disabled libvirtd’s AppArmor profile to be able manage domains via virt-manager. Spice install may be performed via virt-install. It would understand options “–graphics spice”, “–video qxl”. All required packages have been uploaded and built in PPA Spice on Ubuntu 11.04.

Building qemu-kvm&spice based on current /virt/kvm/qemu-kvm.git for Ubuntu 11.04
Uncompress regular Natty qemu-kvm package :-

qemu-kvm_0.14.0+noroms-0ubuntu4.diff.gz
qemu-kvm_0.14.0+noroms-0ubuntu4.dsc
qemu-kvm_0.14.0+noroms.orig.tar.gz

# dpkg-source -x qemu-kvm_0.14.0+noroms-0ubuntu4.dsc
# cd qemu-kvm_0.14.0+noroms-0ubuntu4

Edit debian/rules and comment line ( per Serge Hallyn)

# $(MAKE) -f debian/rules unpatch

to get patching to work !!

That’s a reason why hack “spice-qxl-locking-fix-for-qemu-kvm.patch” didn’t work originally.

Change ./configure part of debian/rules adding “–enable-spice” :-

config-host.mak: $(QUILT_STAMPFN)
dh_testdir
./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 \
$(conf_arch)
Save

Edit debian/patches/series:-

larger_default_ram_size.patch
# Detect-and-use-GCC-atomic-builtins-for-locking.patch
# spice-qxl-locking-fix-for-qemu-kvm.patch
0001-qxl-spice-display-move-pipe-to-ssd.patch
0002-qxl-implement-get_command-in-vga-mode-without-locks.patch
0003-qxl-spice-remove-qemu_mutex_-un-lock_iothread-around.patch
0004-hw-qxl-render-drop-cursor-locks-replace-with-pipe.patch

Save and copy required patches to debian/patches.
