Bug Fix Advisory spice-usb-share and kspiceusb-kmod bug fix update (was spice-usb-redirector)

Advisory: RHBA-2011:0122-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2011-01-13
Last updated on: 2011-01-13
Affected Products: RHEL Desktop Supplementary (v. 5 client)
RHEL Supplementary (v. 5 server)

Details

Updated spice-usb-share and kspiceusb-kmod packages that fix various
bugs and replace spice-usb-redirector, are now available.

spice-usb-share is a non-free USB drivers package which is used to
share USB devices with a guest operating system connected via SPICE.
kspiceusb-kmod provides the kernel module that helps enable
spice-usb-share functionality.

The spice-usb-share and kspiceusb-kmod packages provide
USB-over-network capabilities when working with a SPICE client. The
package include 3 components: a kernel module, a service daemon to
handle the devices and a controller utility which intermediates between
SPICE and the USB service daemon.

Users that are using SPICE to access a remote virtual machine (VM)
managed by Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager and wanting their
client machine operating systems to make USB devices available to guest
operating systems should install/update these new packages.
