Xorg log file
Description of problem:
X fails to start on KVM vhost when using the cirrus driver.
/var/log/Xorg.0.log (attached) ends with:
[ 20.302] (==) Depth 24 pixmap format is 32 bpp
[ 20.302] (EE) FBDEV(0): mmap fbmem: Invalid argument
[ 20.302] (EE) FBDEV(0): mapping of video memory failed
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
On latest F18 with an F18 guest I can boot w/ cirrus fine, though there are some graphical issues:
Since there's been plenty of F18 changes in 2 months, closing as WORKSFORME. John, if you can still reproduce with latest bits, please the qemu command line (/var/log/libvirt/qemu/$vmname.log if you're using libvirt/virt-manager). And if you are using cirrus with an existing guest, or trying to install a new one.
