I've used fullscreen mode by pointing the device_model line to a wrapper script which in turn calls qemu-dm with a few extra options i can't get from the config file, including the -full-screen option. An odd quirk is that the screen goes black during the boot process at the point where the loading screen should show, but once the guest OS is in graphical mode, it appears to work fine.

Hi all,

I want to run the guest domain (Win XP) in full screen mode. I set

the parameter " full-screen" to 1 in winxp.hvm and r an the " xm create"

cmd ( xm create c /etc/xen/winxp.hvm) . This throws a syntax error at 

the line where "full-screen " is enabled. I found that t here is no

logic to parse "full-screen " option in tools/python/xen/xm/*.py

Also I tried setting " full_screen" to 1 by default in tools/ioemu/vl.c

But with this option, when I bring up the guest, it hangs.

Is there a bug in sdl or ioemu because of which the logic for parsing

"full-screen " option in python scripts have been removed ?

May anybody tell me if they have tried running the guest in full screen

mode and if they have succeeded.
