Bug Fix Advisory qspice bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2010:0579-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2010-07-30
Last updated on: 2010-07-30
Affected Products: RHEL Desktop Multi OS (v. 5 client)
RHEL Virtualization (v. 5 server)

Details

Updated qspice packages that fix a bug are now available.

The Simple Protocol for Independent Computing Environments (SPICE) is a remote
display protocol used in Red Hat Enterprise Linux for viewing virtualized guests
running on the KVM hypervisor, or on Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization
Hypervisor.

These updated qspice packages fix the following bug:

* after a live migration of a virtual machine with multiple monitors, not being
reset properly at the client side, the palette cache was not always synchronized
between the server and the client, which could cause the client to terminate
unexpectedly. With this update, the target server always sends the "RESET"
instruction to the client for all monitors, and the client now works as
expected. (BZ#609582)

Users requiring remote display capabilities for KVM hypervisors are advised to
upgrade to these updated qspice packages, which resolve the above issue.
