Spice (spice-space.org) packages for Suse ? Ovirt is out today .. (Do I have to change distro?)


In light of one the biggest recent events in virtualisation - i.e the release of Ovirt today oVirt Project | The Open Source Infrastructure and Management Virtualization Platform

where are the OpenSuse packages for spice Spice - Home page ?

i.e is there a separate Yast repo ?

I have just migrated from Arch to OpenSuse (in order to use R1soft) so would like to avoid having to install a new system.

It is the client side spice packages I need, i.e spice-client and the firefox plugin.

Spice is pretty much going to make VNC obsolete by the looks of things.


It’s in this repo :
Index of /repositories/Virtualization/openSUSE_12.1

When searching for packages not in the standard repos use :
software.opensuse.org: Search Results

Best regards,


Thank you for that !

I saw the repo but it looked like it was only virtualbox related…

I’m very glad I don’t have to reinstall an OS - I have spent a bit of time setting up KDE the exact way I wanted it …

Thanks again !

p.s - how can I change the original post title to say resolved ?

No problem. That’s why software.opensuse.org search is so useful :slight_smile:

Best regards,

Hi, I came across your post while looking for a spice-xpi package for opensuse. The virtualization repo contains the spice-client package but not the spice-xpi package. I’ve created a spice-xpi package for opensuse 12.1, based on the Fedora spice-xpi package. Here’s the package page on OBS: https://build.opensuse.org/package/show?package=spice-xpi&project=home%3Ajasonbrooks

Thank You. Though I don’t use it myself I’m sure it will be useful for someone :slight_smile:

Best regards,
