Re: [fedora-virt] virt-viewer windows port



Hi,
 
I think there is some problem the windows port of virt-viewer or i guess i have done something wrong.
 
I have made the Guest OS display on my Windows Machine but its not through virt-viewer it just by using vnc.
 
As i was able to connect from a remote linux machine using virt-viewer. I figured out that it connects to the libvirtd first and the connects to the display port of the Guest OS.
 
Now when i was trying to connect from my windows machine, what was happening was it was connecting to libvirtd and the hungs up and doesnot connect to the display port of the Guest OS.
 
So i tried to directly connect to the display port of that Guest OS from my Windows machine and i was able to see my Guest OS.
 
I dont know why virt-viewer is not working properly because internally it also uses GTK-VNC only...????
 
Thanks & Regards
Anuj

Hi,

What's with the colours? Why are you making it harder to understand what was said by who? 

It would also be really useful if you kept the attribution lines, so we could all see who had said what, when.

What Richard is asking you for is the output of the ./configure command. 
 
 
 
These are the packages that are required: as given in the mingw32.spec file
mingw32-filesystem
mingw32-gtk2
mingw32-libvirt
mingw32-libxml2
mingw32-libglade2
mingw32-gtk-vnc
pkgconfig
 
These are all there..
 
[root FC11-KVM ~]# rpm -qa | grep mingw32-filesystem

[root FC11-KVM ~]# rpm -qa | grep mingw32-gtk2

What he hasn't asked, yet, is how porting libvirt and the virt-* utilis helps you.

What is the actual end goal here? A "just for fun" experiment, in which case you are probably better served by answers to your questions which lead you to do the deeper debugging. Or a school project, in which case the same applies.

Thanks,
Anand

 
I had to call the libvirt functions from my windows machine and this could only be done by porting libvirt to windows(as a client).. i have done that sucessfully and now I can call all the functions from my windows machine...
 
Now what happens is that after I create a new Guest OS using my code(from windows), I have to logon into my server machine and then continue installing the Guest. This is where i thought of porting virt-viewer to windows so that i can do it from the same remote windows machine.
 
The only problem that im facing right now is with the virt-viewer. If this issues is resolved, we are thinking of intergate libvirt with one of our product.
