Long time no see.
With June 12th updates (from TEST repo) I continued my tests.
Very promising! And definitely usable better than without 3D acceleration.
SPICE is working as expected with auto-resize feature, both with Xorg and Wayland.
Still under SPICE, Xorg is faster than Wayland, but...
Love your tests, @speatzle_ !
Tnx for the commits, I would never have found those alone. If they aren't pushed tonight in pvetest I will apply them and try SPICE.
I am assuming SPICE will then show up in the Console drop-down list while still using video = virtio-virgl. I wonder if the amount...
You're right Tom, Windows can be configured in a way that's it pretty fast and near real-machine performance so GPU acceleration has less benefits there.
Sounds VERY promising on the SPICE implementation! That will be another huge step fwd.
While it gets bumped, I kept on testing more...
Make total sense to me.
This installs 30 packages, which again as said before it makes sense they are not installed by default.
However another package is required: apt install libegl1
This will install the required libEGL.so librairies.
And then it BOOTS!! :D
Good ones for...
Right so pve-qemu-kvm 6.2.0-5 with qemu-server 7.1.5!
root@proxmox:~# qm set 101 --vga virtio-gl
update VM 101: -vga virtio-gl
Sounds good up to that point.
I was wondering if I'd be missing something and yes I am.
Starting the VM (which runs fine without the virtio-gl) fails with
Well that was the dumbest Linux question I've asked in at least 10 years. loll The worst part is I have used qm command a couple of times but never crossed my mind there was a typo. loll
You are certainly correct Tom, I am missing something cuz the output shows:
root@proxmox:~# qm set 101...
You guys are awesome. I tried to follow but got lost easily. I know nothing about qemu, proxmox backend and required dependencies, I would require some guidance in order to test virgl.
Actually it is not that obvious for me. I am running pve-qemu-kvm 6.2.0-4 from Test Repo.
Hi @mapache , I found about this thread today and am following super tightly, as I'm the one logging in bugzilla #3849.
In order to start the VM with args: -display egl-headless,gl=core -device virtio-vga-gl do you need to 1st compile pve-qemu with --enable-sdl --enable-virglrenderer...
Actually I don't have that good eyes, as I am the one who opened the enhancement after searching for days and nights to make this work. :) And of course I landed here! I wanted to let you know the enhancement might help what you're looking for and also if you are willing you can upvote it and...
Yes SPICE is disabled when I used PCI passthrough. I tried VirtIO and another one that I cannot remember, while using PCI passthrough.
I could only make PCI passthrough work with Windows so far, the RDP connection was dropping within a tenth of a second when I was connecting to the Linux guest...
When or how can we also enable 3D acceleration in SPICE?
SPICE is a lot more convenient for me for various reasons and other softwares like VirtualBox and VirtManager offer that feature (3D accel).
Without 3D I cannot run my VMs in an acceptable manner.
