Description of problem:
I cannot change the vga type to std which limits my resolution when I don't use the vnc console interface.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Fire up virt-manager
2. Configure a windows guest
3. get really frustrated because there is no option to use the std vga graphics option available to qemu-kvm
I've written a script to startup the guest, it's basically a long command line... which is this...
sudo qemu-kvm -M pc -m 2048 -smp 2 -name windows -uuid 146d9904-976d-f2e4-06ed-32317af8a373 -pidfile /var/run/libvirt/qemu/windows.pid -localtime -boot c -drive file=/export/home/KVMVirtualSystems/windowscdrive,if=ide,index=0,boot=on -drive file=,if=ide,media=cdrom,index=2 -parallel none -usb -usbdevice tablet -soundhw es1370 -vga std
In Fedora 12 we support this - you just need to do 'virsh edit $guest' and change the <video> tag to:
I don't think we'll be backporting this support to Fedora 11, so I'm just going to close as resolved in rawhide.
If you want to try out and test the Fedora 12 virt bits on Fedora 11, you can grab them here:
Thanks for the report
