Description David Mueller 2008-02-07 12:59:00 EST
Description of problem:

The API for libvirt appears to lack an equivalent to the "virsh vncdisplay"
command to obtain the VNC details of a guest VM.  I am using the Python
bindings, and while it is possible to get this via a shell command, e.g.
os.popen('virsh vncdisplay emulator_red').read(), this is rather inelegant.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

libvirt-0.4.0-4.fc8
Comment 1 Daniel Berrange 2008-02-07 13:16:26 EST
its available in the XML description

char *                  virDomainGetXMLDesc     (virDomainPtr domain,
                                                 int flags);


With xpath expression of  /domain/devices/graphics[@type='vnc']
