libvirtd regression, hard coding kvm-spice again

Just a heads up, there's been a regression with libvirtd, and it's now once again hard coding /usr/bin/kvm-spice instead of using /usr/bin/qemu-system-x86_64.

This will cause libvirtd to fail when starting, and your VMs won't work.

However this fix is quite simple. Simply execute the following command:
ln -s /usr/bin/qemu-system-x86_64 /usr/bin/kvm-spice

And I apologize if this is the wrong place to report this, but it seems Manjaro no longer has an official bug tracking system.

libvirt is one of the packages we inherit from arch. quickest way to draw attention to it would probably be this existing thread. it's supposed to be for updates, but it'll work for this too.

(bugs for manjaro packages can be submitted at the gitlab.)

Thank you for your quick reply and the information. I'll let Arch know about this and try not to start any new threads that are unnecessary. I did look around before posting this but couldn't find anything about it and thought it was new.

oh, you're fine. this thread would still have done the job well enough.
