Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 818169
no console with spice-gtk 0.12.1 and spice/qxl setup
Last modified: 2013-05-13 15:10:20 EDT
Description of problem:
When using virt-manager with a guest setup with display set to spice and video set to QXL the console does not show anything, only a message "Connecting to graphical console for guest". When switching video to cirrus for example, only a black screen appears. Setting display to VNC does work.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Update spice-gtk (and dependencies) to 0.12.1
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a KVM guest in virt-manager
2. Choose spice for display
3. Choose QXL for video
"Connecting to graphical console for guest"
The graphical console
When downgrading to 0.11-4, all is well again.
Argh, I missed this case when Daniel rewrote the URI parser:
(virt-manager:6024): GSpice-WARNING **: Missing port or tls-port in spice URI 'spice://localhost?port=5900'
Patch sent to Spice ML.
I figured it had to be something relatively easy to fix. Thanks for the quick response. Anxiously awaiting the fixed packages ...
Confirmed, works like a charm!
spice-gtk-0.12-2.fc17 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 17.
spice-gtk-0.12-3.fc17 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 17.
spice-gtk-0.12-3.fc17 has been pushed to the Fedora 17 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
This seems to be a problem again in Fedora 19 alpha: the same graphics settings (which are the default) result in a black virt guest display and a runaway virt process that pins 100% of the number of allocated cores.

I suggest you open a bug to the appropriate client for further triaging, please give more details! and try to get a backtrace of the 100% cpu process to see where it is spinning. and perhaps some log would be useful too.
