Description Daniel Berrange 2011-02-24 12:10:26 EST
Description of problem:
Upstream virt-viewer now has the ability to connect to a guest's SPICE display, in addition to existing VNC support. This will be useful for people deploying RHEL guests using SPICE. Thus we should rebase to the 0.3.1 release of virt-viewer in RHEL-6.2

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attempt to use virt-viewer on a guest with spice graphics
Actual results:
No display

Expected results:
SPICE displayed

Daniel ,very thanks for your help,below is detail of my verification for multihead

verify SPICE multihead support with :

  1:Install a new Windows XP guest
  2:Change the guest to use SPICE graphics and have a single QXL video card
  3:Boot the guest, and install the WHQL'd 'QXL' driver in Windows.
  4:Reboot the guest and check QXL is working properly
  5:Shutdown the guest
  6:Add another 'video' element to the guest XML
  #virsh dumpxml winxp
 <graphics type='spice' port='5900' tlsPort='-1' autoport='yes' listen=''>
      <listen type='address' address=''/>
      <model type='qxl' vram='65536' heads='1'/>
      <alias name='video0'/>
      <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x00' slot='0x02' function='0x0'/>
      <model type='qxl' vram='65536' heads='1'/>
      <alias name='video1'/>
      <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x00' slot='0x06' function='0x0'/>
   7: Boot the guest again, and make sure Windows installs the QXL driver for the new graphics card
   8:in Windows XP guest,right click on the desktop,in "settings"->"Display",list two monitor on "Red Hat QXL GPU"
   9: select the second monitor,checked "Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor" and apply.virt-viewer popup a new window.
