I'm using 12.04 LTS amd64 as a KVM host + desktop. I have a Windows 7 ultimate 64bit guest on this host. The installation worked perfect with the default (VNC display) settings. Everything also works very well over a RDP session (using rdesktop) to the box, including sound and video. Netflix, however, can detect somehow that I'm on a remote desktop session so it fails at the "buffering" stage to launch the movie. I wanted to try out SPICE as a workaround for this, but when I switch the guest display over to SPICE it fails to launch with :
Error starting domain: unsupported configuration: spicevmc not supported in this QEMU binary Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/asyncjob.py", line 45, in cb_wrapper callback(asyncjob, *args, **kwargs) File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/asyncjob.py", line 66, in tmpcb callback(*args, **kwargs) File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/domain.py", line 1120, in startup self._backend.create() File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/libvirt.py", line 551, in create if ret == -1: raise libvirtError ('virDomainCreate() failed', dom=self) libvirtError: unsupported configuration: spicevmc not supported in this QEMU binary
How can I fix this?
