I tried to use SPICE with qemu to use with a Windows XP virtual machine on Ubuntu 11.04/64 bit. I followed these instructions:

http://docs.cslabs.clarkson.edu/wiki/SPICE

I ended with these Problems:

  • the newly compiled version of qemu conflicted with libvirt (apparmor)
  • as a result I could not use virt-manager
  • starting the VM without virt-manager was possible, but I did not have a network connection inside the VM

Is there a reliable way to install SPICE in ubuntu 11.04?

Another topic? Just use Xen ; the explanation is in the post you made a few hours ago: Best way to access a Windows-XP virtual machine

But anyway, if you want SPICE specifically here is the installation method: http://bderzhavets.wordpress.com/2011/04/27/setup-kvmqemuspice-on-ubuntu-11-04-via-ppaserge-hallynspice2/

No, not Xen - but the link to the Spice instructions work fine. –  Thomas Sep 9 '11 at 18:35

Removing or disabling Apparmor should solve your problem if it's caused by apparmor

Disable and remove AppArmor on Ubuntu based Linux distributions

For me it solved many problems especially with upstream compiled kernel and I haven't noticed any downside to this approach. Good luck!
