Hi Pavel,
thanks for your analysis and your time. Indeed I was also able to set
the vgamem to 131072 without my Windows client crashing! That was good
but the problem of the resolution to select remains. So I get a list
like this:
2560 x 14402560 x 16002560 x 16002800 x 21003200 x 24003840 x 21604096
x 2160
but The resolution I want, 5120 x 1440 is not listed and auto resizing
the VM only results in more black borders to the screen. So somehow I
should inform the Red Hat QXL display controller to add that mode as a
possiblity. In my Linux host I could do that by using Xrandr and add
the resolution and the refresh rate. But in my Windows Client i do not
see that option.
many thanks for your efforts. I really appreciate it because the actual
user feedback for Linux newbee's like myself is rather low.
kind regards,
