Description Cole Robinson 2014-09-24 16:14:04 UTC
I can't get resize-guest to work using f21 host/guest/client. Neither virt-viewer or virt-manager seem to trigger a resolution change in the guest.

FWIW a RHEL6 VM on f21 host/client resizes correctly with virt-viewer.

I saw the same issue on a F20 host with a F21 guest (bug 1137047).

Comment 2 Robert Hancock 2014-10-20 04:38:02 UTC
Also seeing this issue on F20 host and F21 guest (both fully updated). journalctl -f in the guest does show this message popping out when I resize the VM window:

Oct 19 22:34:01 localhost.localdomain gnome-session[1492]: (gnome-settings-daemon:1577): color-plugin-WARNING **: unable to get EDID for xrandr-Virtual-0: unable to get EDID for output

It does appear the guest is figuring out that the window resolution has changed, because if I open up the Display control panel the actual window size shows up in the list of resolutions and I can select that to resize the window content. It's just not figuring out to resize the resolution automatically.

Those patches were included in 3.14.2, which has been in F21 for a while now - so can someone confirm that this is no longer an issue?

Yes it appears to be working with F22 host and up to date F21 VM, thanks
