[Dev] [PATCH] Update [libre/gnome-boxes] to the neweset version (3.34.2)

Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli GNUtoo at cyberdimension.org
Wed Dec 25 04:04:28 GMT 2019

From: theova <theova at bluewin.ch>

- Bumb version
- Rename dependency spice-gtk3 to spice-gtk
- Remove dependency libgovir to follow upstream

Tested on x86_64, sucessfully built on i686 and armv7h.
Building on ARM requires to build [libr/libosinfo] as well
as it requires a recent version of [libr/libosinfo].

Gnome-boxes has buttons to download and install non-free
GNU/Linux distributions. While this feature is broken (The
message "unsupported protocol https" pops up when trying to
use it), it still need to be removed in a subsequent patch.
Note that this issue was already present before this patch.
