Arch virtual on Arch host via KVM/Qemu - Spice & QXL issue

I decided to try make things work but this is just not going to work.
I have created a new VM , and so far :

QXL and bosch_drm are both loaded:

# lsmod | grep qxl
qxl                    81920  2
ttm                   114688  2 qxl,bochs_drm
drm_kms_helper        208896  2 qxl,bochs_drm
drm                   499712  6 drm_kms_helper,qxl,bochs_drm,ttm

The VGA driver in use is QXL:

00:01.0 0300: 1b36:0100 (rev 04) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
	Subsystem: 1af4:1100
	Flags: fast devsel, IRQ 21
	Memory at f4000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=64M]
	Memory at f8000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=64M]
	Memory at fce14000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=8K]
	I/O ports at c040 [size=32]
	Expansion ROM at 000c0000 [disabled] [size=128K]
	Kernel driver in use: qxl
	Kernel modules: qxl

And vdagent is up and running:

systemctl status spice-vdagentd
* spice-vdagentd.service - Agent daemon for Spice guests
   Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/spice-vdagentd.service; indirect; vendor preset: disabled)
   Active: active (running) since Thu 2019-04-25 01:24:26 CEST; 14min ago
  Process: 732 ExecStart=/usr/bin/spice-vdagentd $SPICE_VDAGENTD_EXTRA_ARGS (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)
 Main PID: 736 (spice-vdagentd)
    Tasks: 1 (limit: 4622)
   Memory: 636.0K
   CGroup: /system.slice/spice-vdagentd.service
           `-736 /usr/bin/spice-vdagentd

And com.redhat.spice.0 / spicevmc is added as a channel...
I would exclude any memory issues as well because 16MB (the same amount given to windows) works just fine on a FullHD display.

Could someone explain why the resolution is crappy? If I start a normal DE it would switch to "rendering" mode and the "bigger" display that offers is a 1280x768.
The "thing" that makes me "grrrrr" (yeah.. nice topic btw) is that on a Windows 10 virtual machine it works just fine. The display fits perfectly and automatically.

How's it possible!?

Please post xorg log, xrandr -q and glxinfo -B output from the guest.

Thanks, it turns out I had some weird configurations on /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d , after I removed those everything works like a charm, screen resize & copy/pate.
I'll mark the thread as resolved.

Re: Arch virtual on Arch host via KVM/Qemu - Spice & QXL issue

And there's a problem again, not like the first one, but didn't want to open a new thread.
PS: this is another system, installed yesterday.

So, now the resize works fine on this one (no weird configuration I promise, this is bare bone arch), however whenever the screen is in the "resize" mode, it switches to 0,5Mhz.
If I set the screen size manually to one detected by the driver it works fine and it shows 60Mhz.

Below when Auto Resize VM with window is set / checked:

% xrandr
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1920 x 945, maximum 8192 x 8192

Now, I'm removing xorg logs and will reboot. Setting the window to autoresize VM.
This is the log generated by the startup and login into cinnamon (tried with xfce4 as well same results).

Re: Arch virtual on Arch host via KVM/Qemu - Spice & QXL issue

You do have xf86-video-qxl installed, right ?

The out of memory messages look like they come from the kernel OOM killer and relate to guest video memory .

Look at https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/QE … or_support and try
- decreasing qxl.heads
- increase vgamem_mb
- increase vram_size_mb if qxl.heads * vgamem_mb > vram_size_mb

No clue which numbers will work, but halving qxl.heads and doubling vgamem_mb  seems worth a shot,

Re: Arch virtual on Arch host via KVM/Qemu - Spice & QXL issue

Yes of course it's installed.
I'v tried so far to copy and modify the command of virt-manager (I go for easy and get it done) but no joy in running it:

sudo /usr/bin/qemu-system-x86_64 -name guest=archlinux \

Re: Arch virtual on Arch host via KVM/Qemu - Spice & QXL issue

You shouldn't need to run qemu with sudo , but as normal user.

please run as normal user and post the output.

It's the same error with the user as well, this time I'm including the coredump log.

Re: Arch virtual on Arch host via KVM/Qemu - Spice & QXL issue

This is getting above my skill level, and Applications & Desktop Environments may be the wrong board for this issue.

I suggest you ask mods to move this thread to kernel and hardware forum.

Re: Arch virtual on Arch host via KVM/Qemu - Spice & QXL issue

I think I'll leave it at this... (I don't have other options, this is most probably code related, a bug or lack of something) I'll just set it to fullHD and switch between full screen, at least it works well that way...
Out of curiosity, do any of you guys have a Linux virtual system on KVM/qemu where spice / vdagent screen autoresolution works?
Even with a laptop (again fullhd screen) I never recall having it ever working, except on windows... Which is ironic, having a linux software work on windows while the same feature doesn't work on Linux.

Re: Arch virtual on Arch host via KVM/Qemu - Spice & QXL issue

Just a quick update...
I was able to get rid of the OOM-killer problems by increasing the GPU memory to 256MB, in order to do so you shouldn't add vgamem_mb since it's not recognized in the xml configuration (virsh won't let you add it).
Instead I used
virsh edit archlinux

      <model type='qxl' ram='262144' vram='262144' vgamem='262144' heads='1' primary='yes'/>

As for the numbers you are probably looking for one of these power of 2 values:

2n16	=	65,536
2n17	=	131,072
2n18	=	262,144 * will be recognized as 256MB
2n19	=	524,288
2n20	=	1,048,576 

yet again this didn't solve the rendering problem and the autoresize will basically loose the framerate.
