Description Mikhail Kulemin 2011-01-14 20:58:34 EST
Description of problem:

Libvirt can not start VM with qxl graphics.

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

libvirt 0.8.7-1.fc14 from virt-preview repo
qemu 0.13.0-1.fc14

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

1. Create domain with qxl graphics:
(from XML description):
      <model type='qxl' heads='1'/>
      <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x00' slot='0x02' function='0x0'/>

2. Try to start virsh start <domain>
Actual results:
error: Failed to start domain WindowsXP
error: unsupported configuration: This QEMU does not support QXL graphics adapters

Expected results:
Domain started normally.

Additional info:
This build of qemu supports qxl: VM can be started manually using qemu command:

qemu-kvm -m 1024 -drive file=/dev/vg_virt/fedora14 -monitor stdio -spice port=1234,disable-ticketing -vga qxl

But libvirt check qxl support using qemu-kvm --help. In output we can not find qxl in supported modes list:

home ~ $ qemu-kvm --help | grep vga
-vga [std|cirrus|vmware|xenfb|none]

So this bug can be fixed by adding qxl in help output of qemu.

# LANG=C virsh start windows
