Re: Fedora 15 guest on Fedora 15 Host (KVM + SPICE + QXL) is graphically unresponsive
My experience isn't quite the same as yours, but there are similarities.
I'm running an Arch Linux guest on a Fedora 15 host. KVM + SDL seems to run OK, so I compiled and installed the QXL drivers on the Arch guest and started it with spice and ran the spice client.
Awful! For one thing, when spicec is running, it interferes with an unrelated xterm that happens to be open on the host (a few rows of pixels are hidden in the last row of text).
Also, the whole display seems to freeze every few seconds. Pressing SHIFT-F11 twice to go into and out of full screen shakes it loose usually, but it got so frozen that I actually had to reboot the host once.
They really made the sales pitch for spice, and I was excited about it. But I think we should consider it alpha for now. Or maybe it's the qxl drivers--I don't know what the problem is.
