Xen list,

I am trying to boot a F20 guest and connect using Spice but have run
into an issue.

My VM config file includes:
spice = 1

Is Spice supported with qemu-xen-traditional?

No, only with upstream qemu and if compile xen and qemu from source you also enable spice support on qemu build, for example on my xen build tests I add:

@@ -201,6 +201,8 @@ subdir-all-qemu-xen-dir: qemu-xen-dir-find
          --datadir=$(SHAREDIR)/qemu-xen \
          --localstatedir=/var \
          --disable-kvm \
+        --enable-spice \
+        --enable-usb-redir \
          --disable-docs \
          --disable-guest-agent \
          --python=$(PYTHON) \

If you use upstream qemu from distribution package probably have already
spice build-in, for example, on debian I've already tested and working.
It might be nice at some point to have this integrated into the
top-level configure, possibly enabled by default (gated on the
appropriate development libraries being enabled).


I already did a patch to do it time ago in three different ways but all rejected :( A one reason was the lack of needed libraries on many distros versions used with xen. Now all newer versions have the needed spice and usbredir libraries included, so if you would like reconsider the path please point me in the right direction in order to have this done correctly.

The three way I did were:
- enabled by default
- Added optional build configs for qemu upstream (debug part now no more needed because already present) http://lists.xen.org/archives/html/xen-devel/2012-03/msg00506.html - Autoconf: add variable for pass arbitrary options to qemu upstream http://lists.xen.org/archives/html/xen-devel/2012-03/msg01677.html Probably there are also newer versions of these patches that I not found anymore.

Thanks for any reply.
