Description Michał Górny archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2024-04-13 08:29:04 UTC
This package does not support Python 3.12.  Please test it with Python 3.12 as a matter of urgency as the default will change in early June, as per message on gentoo-dev:  Please check the information provided in the tracker.  Ask in #gentoo-python on IRC if need any help.
Comment 1 Ian Pickworth 2024-06-08 13:14:09 UTC
I edited the ebuild: 

   PYTHON_COMPAT=( python3_{9..11} )
   PYTHON_COMPAT=( python3_{9..12} )

Then ran:
   emerge  --oneshot --jobs app-emulation/virt-viewer

Emerge worked.
Loaded an ran virt-viewer, and it is working in the use cases I have it for.

Not a comprehensive test. I use VNC with LXC and QEMU/KVM virtual machines.

Perhaps a ebuild bump could be made to expose it to wider testing?
