virt-manager OpenGL guest does not work

I am trying to get virt-manager to run a guest with 3d acceleration. Under the hardware "Display Splice" of the guest there is a checkbox called OpenGL.
Next to the checkbox there is a exclamation icon with the tooltip:

Graphics listen type does not support spice gl

Under this same hardware "Display Splice" there is a drop down menu called "Listen type" with the items "Address" and "None".
Setting it to "None" makes the exclamation sign disappear but running the guest gives a black screen.

Non accelerated gives an interactive guest.

Running arch with nvidia (tried nouveau and binary blob), guest is arch install iso.

I've tried to search for a solution but came up empty. Help much appreciated...

Re: virt-manager OpenGL guest does not work

you could try and install the guest first with non-gl accelerated QXL display driver.

more Infos could be found in the Arch Wiki as always. … celeration
