I don't understand the distinction you are making between the "Server" and the "laptop". Are these separate physical machines? Can you explain this more -- what is this "Server" and how does it function? I'm wondering if I'm missing something important in my own virtualization work.

How did you get libvirt 0.6.4? I only have 0.6.2:

[rlc deafeng3 ~]$ rpm -q libvirt

Perhaps you got it through updates-testing?

Just starting out with an XP guest on Fedora 11 kvm. I'm using virt-manager to connect from a laptop.


On the laptop:

The console comes, and XP runs fine. But, screen is scaled too large vertically for my laptop screen which is 1280x800. Only with fullscreen can I see the bottom menu bar. I would have assumed I could change the size of the screen (even if not the aspect ratio), but I can't.

Am I doing something wrong, or is this just The Way Things Are?


The server is a desktop server that runs qemu-kvm and libvirt. I connect to that server from my laptop using virt-manager.

For newer spins, koji is your friend. Try http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=104926, get the src.rpm and rebuild.

BTW, top-posting makes posts hard to read,

Thank you Sean, I just never thought about a separate virtualization server. Makes perfect sense. And I've learned something new.
