6.5 VM on RHEL7 host: After Leaving VM idle for an a period of time (around an hour) resolution matching for full screen fails
Last modified: 2015-01-26 10:41:11 EST
Description of problem:
Leaving the remote-viewer window idle in windowed mode for an extended period of time (around an hour), and then coming back to the remote-viewer window of the VM, and attempting to go to full screen fails (It doesn't match the resolution of the client, instead it retains its current resolution and adds black bars to the top and bottom).
qxl arbitrary resolution change of changing resolution when changing the window size in windowed mode still works, but on full screen resolution does not change to match the clients resolution. Spice-vdagent behavior of copy and paste still works.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Client: RHEL 7 RHEL-7.0-20131106.n.1
Guest: RHEL 6.5 RC1.2
Host: RHEL 7 RHEL-7.0-20131106.n.1
100% of my attempts (3)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Normally use a 6.5 VM using a RHEL7 client & host
2. Leave it idle for an hour
3. Go back to using the VM and try to bring the VM to full screen
Resolution does not change from the windowed resolution, and the VM is show in full screen with black bars at the top and bottom of the window
When going to full screen, resolution matches the client's resolution, and there are no black bars seen
This request was not resolved in time for the current release.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if still desired, for consideration in
the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Can you still reproduce this? I frequently leave my client idle, and never noticed such issue. If you can, please provide spice-vdagent log. Thanks
