|Fixed In Version:||mingw-virt-viewer-0.5.3-18.el6ev||Doc Type:||Release Note|
A new native multiple monitor feature using a single QXL device for Red Hat Enterprise Linux virtual machines is included in the latest version of mingw-virt-viewer available in Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.2. However, on Red Hat Enterprise Linux virtual machines multiple QXL devices are still created with not enough memory for a single QXL device, which can cause the multi-monitor feature to misbehave. To work around this issue, do not enable native multi-monitor support on your Linux virtual machines until this issue is fixed. Instead, use the Xinerama Xorg extension to manage Red Hat Enterprise Linux virtual machines with multi-monitor enabled.

Is it a single QXL or is it multiple? It looks like multiple to me. 2) If Windows uses multiple QXL, you're saying is that the current version of mingw-virt-viewer shipped with RHEV 3.1 does not support multi-monitor for Windows? That would be a pretty big regression.

That would be a pretty big regression. For windows guests, there is no change. Multiple monitors require multiple QXL devices. The mingw-virt-viewer package in RHEV-3.1 supports this. For Linux guests, a new feature was implemented in RHEL-6.4, which is multiple monitors with a single QXL device. The client side implementation of this feature will be pulled into RHEV-3.2 mingw-virt-viewer (actually most changes are in mingw-spice-gtk package) with this bug's rebase.

Ok, thanks for clarifying this. In that case, I think we might have a different issue with the mingw-virt-viewer. On WinXP clients, if you have dual monitor configured for a Windows guest, every time you close virt-viewer and re-open it, you have to re-enable the 2nd display in the guest. I'll try to reproduce the issue and open a separate bug if needed. Thanks.

Another feature: - HTTP Proxy support (ability to connect to the server via an HTTP proxy)
