|Type:||Bug Fix Advisory|
|Last updated on:||2013-01-07|
|Affected Products:||Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client)|
An updated spice-client package that fixes one bug is now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5.
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.
This update fixes the following bug:
* Prior to this update, the SPICE client did not correctly handle an exception
which was raised when trying to connect to a guest operating system with no
running SPICE agent. As a consequence, the SPICE client application terminated
unexpectedly after a 30-second timeout. With this update, the SPICE client
correctly handles this situation and successfully connects to the guest system
without unnecessary waiting. (BZ#789331)
All users of spice-client are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which
fixes this bug.
