Description of problem:
When creating a new VM guest of 14.04 ubuntu server, the console fails to display after creation.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedroa 20, up to date, virt-manager version 1.0.1
So far, every time. My colleague has the same issue, with the same environment.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Select a new machine based on a 14.04 ubuntu server image.
2.When prompted for the OS type, select linux, version, select 13.10(or later) option.
3.Once built, attempt to open graphical console.
blank console screen
an actual working console to the new VM
Workaround: Select the OS version to be Ubuntu 12.04
This is caused by use of qxl, see a similar report here:
Ubuntu historically wants to use vmvga as the graphics device, we should carry that forward for future ubuntu versions.
