Details

An updated spice-client package that fixes two bugs is now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 6.

The spice-client package provides the Simple Protocol for Independent Computing
Environments (SPICE) client application. SPICE is a remote display protocol
designed for virtual environments. SPICE users can access a virtualized desktop
or server from the local system or any system with network access to the server.
SPICE is used in Red Hat Enterprise Linux for viewing virtualized guests running
on the KVM hypervisor or on Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisors.

This update fixes the following bugs:

* The SPICE client did not properly support the Xinerama extension in full
screen mode on multi-screen setups. Therefore, if the user switched to full
screen mode while using Xinerama, the SPICE client windows failed to cover all
physical screens used by the guest. With this update, the underlying code has
been modified to provide Xinerama support and the SPICE client now behaves
correctly in full screen mode. (BZ#771323)

* Any attempt of sound recording in the guest failed if there was another
application accessing the recording device on the SPICE client startup. This
update ensures that the client uses the PulseAudio sound server, which now
allows multiple applications to access the recording device at the same time.
(BZ#790892)

All users of spice-client are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which
fixes these bugs.
