This is a rephrasing of bug 797772, except that it asks for qxl instead of vga.

*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of bug 797772 ***
Comment 2 Daniel Berrange 2012-03-27 14:03:18 EDT
Also see bug 807413 for why we can't default to QXL.
Comment 3 Laine Stump 2012-03-27 15:31:32 EDT
JUst thought I should point out that this bug is filed against Fedora 17, but the "duplicate" is filed against RHEL6.
Comment 4 Cole Robinson 2012-06-07 17:49:18 EDT
Yeah this just isn't gonna happen. If we wanted to change the default it should be at the qemu level, and that's a long upstream discussion.

virt-manager + boxes should be using qxl by default, so hopefully it's a moot point.
