Comment 2 Daniel Berrange 2007-08-09 14:57:06 UTC
Confirmed the problem - libvirt is not using the new style  vfb = []  configs -
assuming old style. This is as result of RHEL-5 having backported code from
newer XenD and thus screwing up libvirt's version detection. Fairly simple fix
to follow

Fixed handling of PVFB configs

There were multiple problems:

 - It should be writing the new style config
 - It should be capable of reading either old style, *or* new style at same
 - It didn't correctly handle vncdisplay option
