Cannot launch X with QXL - it crashes
Last modified: 2013-07-03 22:42:54 EDT
Description of problem:
With official F17/x64 beta (live desktop), X always crashes after it loads with QXL.
My QEMU command line:
./x86_64-softmmu/qemu-system-x86_64 -spice port=6902,disable-ticketing,jpeg-wan-compression=always,zlib-glz-wan-compression=always,playback-compression=on -k en-us -name F17_Beta -boot d -drive file=~/f17a.qcow2,if=virtio,cache=writethrough,media=disk,format=qcow2 -drive file=~/Downloads/Fedora-17-Beta-x86_64-Live-Desktop.iso,if=scsi,media=cdrom -soundhw hda -m 1024 -cpu core2duo,+x2apic -smp 2 -balloon none -monitor stdio --parallel none -vga qxl -uuid 93226831-ade7-47ea-be28-5e1926d0b7a7
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kvm module: from F16 - qemu-kvm-0.15.1-4.fc16.x86_64
Always - but I'm pretty sure this did NOT happen in F17 beta-RC3 or before that (there were crashes, but not all the time)
Steps to Reproduce:
Will try to extract Xorg.0.log from the VM, but it is full with errors (reported earlier to Alon Levy over IRC) with cache issues of the driver. Not sure they are related.
Also happens with qemu only (git hash 6e7a7f3d9bc2031b4c93c05400b18775ba1b1f55).
Clean install from beta live CD worked, closing the BZ for the time being.

And re-opening again. After installation of the live CD to disk and boot from disk - I'm back into this situation.

Thanks for the bug report, can you supply a stacktrace of the crashing X process in the vm?
