    Didn't think about it. Good idea.
    oVirt has a hook (and UI) to support manual configuration of the VM (I actually use it on the desktop I write this on, to pass-through nVidia 1650TI to a Linux VM without having the driver detect its running as guest).

    Its important to note that is a DOD only, so you will still be using software rasterization

    Thanks.
    Seems that virt-gpu is not support by ovirt.

    Here, running virt-view from a Windows client. https://paste.tnonline.net/files/UPU...-05_183523.png

    To add spice with OpenGL/VirGL support you have to replace the graphics section in the VM definition with the following code. Use virsh from a shell to do it.
    #virsh edit fedora34:
    Code:
    <graphics type='spice' autoport='yes' listen='192.168.0.1'>
    <listen type='address' address='192.168.0.1'/>
    <image compression='auto_glz'/>
    <streaming mode='filter'/>
    <clipboard copypaste='yes'/>
    <filetransfer enable='yes'/>
    </graphics>
    <graphics type='egl-headless'>
    <gl rendernode='/dev/dri/renderD128'/>
    </graphics>
    This brings both AUDIO and VIDEO to the Spice client

    it is dead code as besides nouveau and svga no driver tries to handle it and there is simply now way to generate a TGSI with those anyway.

    This change adds a gallium D3D10 state tracker that works as a WDDM UMD software driver, similar to Microsoft WARP, but using llvmpipe/softpipe. The final deliverable...
