[Spice-devel] [PATCH spice-win-qxl] spice: windows qxl drivers: support x64 build
tha at math.ubc.ca
Tue Mar 15 12:28:29 PDT 2011
Test setup: Windows 7 64 bit guest, run on RHEL 6 KVM
Linux guests using xserver-xorg-video-qxl almost work.
YouTube flash inverted when using Windows Spice Client
but that is another thread.
QXL drivers tested and all fail to load. It uses generic vga driver.
* Spice-space: qxl-win32-0.6.0.zip \
* My build: QXL spice-0.8.0 and spice-0.6.4
If you think Win7 64-bit is still too early for Beta test then
I will move on with only Win.x 32-bit for our test Ugrad Labs.
