1.235.  virt-viewer

1.235.1.  RHBA-2009:1299: bug fix update

A updated virt-viewer package that fixes two issues with the "-w" option is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
Virtual Machine Viewer provides a graphical console client for connecting to virtual machines. It uses the GTK-VNC widget to provide the display, and libvirt for looking up VNC server details.
This update addresses the following two bugs:
  • the "-w" or "--wait" options (for "wait for domain to start") returned an "invalid option" error rather than waiting for the nominated domain to start. (BZ#444024)
  • when a guest was started up, running "virt-viewer --wait [guestname]" did not result in notification of the guest's changed status and did not result in virt-viewer connecting to the newly-started guest. (BZ#444028)
All Virtual Machine Viewer users should install this updated package which fixes these two problems.
