7.225. virt-manager

Updated virt-manager packages that fix two bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
Virtual Machine Manager (virt-manager) is a graphical tool for administering virtual machines for KVM, Xen, and QEMU. The virt-manager utility uses the libvirt API and can start, stop, add or remove virtualized devices, connect to a graphical or serial console, and view resource usage statistics for existing virtualized guests on local or remote machines.

Bug Fixes

Previously, when using the virt-manager tool to install a guest and checking the "Virtualization tools" box in the "Customize package" menu, virt-manager terminated unexpectedly after the installation was completed and the guest was rebooted. This update fixes the underlying code, and virt-manager no longer crashes in the described scenario.
Prior to this update, when using the virt-manager GUI to change the number of CPU threads on the guest, the "Apply" and "Cancel" buttons incorrectly remained disabled. With this update, the signal and callback names in virt-manager have been corrected to properly parse changes to the cpu-thread, and the problem no longer occurs.
Users of virt-manager are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
