Description

This breaks X.Org startup on feature/stretch in my testing environment, and in the configuration used by our automated test suite. Maybe this should make us prioritize #10298 higher.

Revert "Test suite: use a VGA graphics adapter, instead of the QXL one."

This reverts commit 91f2ae152951208f865254293cb26a389797fb35.

Thanks to our workaround to #11518 we can (and must!) use QXL again.

History

#1 Updated by intrigeri over 3 years ago

#2 Updated by intrigeri over 3 years ago

I've also tried the following QEMU video adapters:

  • Cirrus video, cirrus.modeset=1: X.Org fails to start
  • Cirrus video, cirrus.modeset=0: X.Org fails to start
  • VGA video: X.Org starts (using the modesetting driver)
  • VMVGA: X.Org fails to start

So as a temporary workaround, I've applied 91f2ae1 ("Test suite: use a VGA graphics adapter, instead of the QXL one") to feature/stretch.
