What I am doing to achieve this:


Goto KVM Guests[F15 in my case] Information TAB [Show Virtual Hardware Details]
-Select 'Add Hardware' in the Lft-Bottom-Corner
-Select 'PCI Host Device'
-Select 'Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller' and select 'Finish'

<color=red>Boooom!!! </color> My screen disappears - with a Black Haunting Screen replacing it.

After trying All possible Keystrokes - I finally Decide to Reboot My Entire system hosting the KVM Guests.

  1. Am I missing out some minor things ?

  2. Any XML file tweaks would help this?

  3. Can I run Gnome-3.0 with all the effects in the KVM (F15) guest after doing this?
    -Including Compiz

Any answers would be appreciated.

Cheers
Anand

For your above question: At the moment, KVM/QEMU does not support 3D graphics. There is a roadmap for that I believe.

Yup Just got this out of the spice-space:

For your 'PCI Host Device' adding problem -- I was able to reproduce on an F14 host. And lost all sessions. Just a thing to try: Assuming your host is F15 too,can you please try w/ the latest virt-manager available in koji, from here -- http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=257687

If the problem still persists, please report a bug -- https://bugzilla.redhat.com/

Hi Kashyap,

I am using : virt-manager.noarch [0.8.6-4.el6]

JFYI: I am using a RHEL based KVM server and trying to assign a PCI device to a F15-KVM Guest.

Thanks on the Gnome-3.0 answer as well

Cheers Anand
