Description Freddy Willemsen 2012-05-02 07:23:26 EDT
Description of problem:
When using virt-manager with a guest setup with display set to spice and video set to QXL the console does not show anything, only a message "Connecting to graphical console for guest". When switching video to cirrus for example, only a black screen appears. Setting display to VNC does work.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
0.12.1

How reproducible:
Update spice-gtk (and dependencies) to 0.12.1

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a KVM guest in virt-manager
2. Choose spice for display
3. Choose QXL for video
  
Actual results:
"Connecting to graphical console for guest"

Expected results:
The graphical console

Additional info:
When downgrading to 0.11-4, all is well again.

Argh, I missed this case when Daniel rewrote the URI parser:

(virt-manager:6024): GSpice-WARNING **: Missing port or tls-port in spice URI 'spice://localhost?port=5900'

Patch sent to Spice ML.

I figured it had to be something relatively easy to fix. Thanks for the quick response. Anxiously awaiting the fixed packages ...

Comment 9 deesto 2013-05-13 15:02:42 EDT
This seems to be a problem again in Fedora 19 alpha: the same graphics settings (which are the default) result in a black virt guest display and a runaway virt process that pins 100% of the number of allocated cores.

I suggest you open a bug to the appropriate client for further triaging, please give more details! and try to get a backtrace of the 100% cpu process to see where it is spinning. and perhaps some log would be useful too.
