Details

Updated spice-vdagent packages that fixes several bugs are now available for Red
Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

The spice-vdagent packages provide a SPICE agent for Linux guests.

This update fixes the following bugs:

* While adjusting the guest monitor configuration, the SPICE agent failed to set
the resolution when it switched to full-screen mode, because the guests video
memory was exhausted. This left the guest monitor configuration in an
inconsistent state. This update fixes the issue by reverting the guest monitor
configuration to the previous state, when the agent fails to adjust the guest
monitor configuration. (BZ#919089)

* Previously, after performing tasks such as resizing the window, copying and
pasting data and changing to full-screen mode, the user session spice-vdagent
process terminated when the system-level spice-vdagentd was restarted. With this
update, the user session spice-vdagent process no longer crashes after restarts.
(BZ#921154)

* The vdagent agent logged warning messages when multiple monitors were used on
a single qxl device. With this update, the agent does not log a warning when
there are more monitors than qxl-devs. (BZ#921155)

Users of spice-vdagent are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
fix these bugs.
