I used virt-manager to create a virtual Rawhide machine for testing,
with qemu and kvm providing the virtualization. My virtual machine is
stuck at a low resolution (640x480? I don't remember right now and
its on my home machine). When I looked in /var/log/Xorg.log on the
virtual machine, I saw lots of complaints about modes being out of
range. Resizing the window and going to full screen just scale the
low resolution up to the window/screen size. I've combed through the
virt-manager man page without finding any mention of video resolution.
The kvm man page tells me to use the -std-vga option, but I don't
know how to pass it from virt-manager. Does anybody know how to get
The host is a Fedora 10 x86-64 machine, and the virtual machine is a
Rawhide x86-64 machine, by the way.
