Re: [Xen-devel] Guest domain in full screen
The other options were "other options that also are not possible to get passed to qemu-dm from using the config file", such as multiple serial devices (the default config only parses a single one). The only option related to the full-screen mode is the -full-screen option.
I haven't seen the issue with the guest crashing when using full-screen, so unfortunately I wouldn't know what to do about that.
For what it's worth, looking into the fullscreen mode work better is on my TODO list, and I've just fixed the last (hopefully) "showstopper" flaw in Xen for the project I'm working on, which means I'll be getting more flexibility with where to spend my coding time.

Thanks for your reply.
There are 2 problems
"full-screen=1" option is not getting trickled down to
To get away with step 1, I hardcoded "full_screen"
value to 1 in tools/ioemu/vl.c and passed to sdl_display_init (ds,
full_screen). But it crashes.
I think with the changes
you made you could solve the problem 1. I am facing program crash with problem
Please let me know if the
change you did in your script file (with regards to full screen problem) was
only parsing the "full-screen" option and then appending it to
"args". If so, did this alone solve the problem.
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.

This throws a syntax

found that t here is no

Also I tried setting

But with this option, when
up the guest, it hangs.
Is there a bug in sdl or
ioemu because of which the logic for parsing
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
