        Great to see virt-manager now makes it easy to enable 3D acceleration for Linux guests via virgl. However since only Linux guests have virgl drivers, 3D acceleration for Windows guests requires GPU passthrough.

        It's a shame the blog post doesn't mention options such as Intel GVT. It appears that GVT works when launching qemu directly, but support via libvirt, virsh and virt-manager doesn't exist yet. Anyone aware of work towards enabling GVT via virt-manager?

          Maybe this? https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php...#Using_libvirt

            I'll offer an unpopular opinion. Using virt-manager is way harder than using qemu directly. Editing virsh or virt-manager is mostly harder than editing direct qemu command. I just save the commands in script files and launch those. I don't know why people use virsh.

              Proxmox...

              ​​​​​​​I was talking about QEMU.

                When I first learned about the QXL option, I thought it offered some sort of video acceleration (like VirGL) or even 60Hz, but no, it didn't... (not even through a SPICE viewer)

                    Well Proxmox's just a GUI for KVM/QEMU so it shouldn't be that hard to look at how they use it.

                      In that video you don't use QXL, you use vga vmware???
