Re: [Fedora-xen] recompile for using sdl and vnc

With sdl display, I don't any mouse and keyboard issues, that's not the case in VNC. Tha fact that te VM dies when the X session dies is not a matter for me.
My aim is to have a Windows VM which works as if it was not in a VM. Thanks to sdl display, the windows VM is more fluid. But I'd like to use VNC if I can have the same result.

In a second hand, I'd like to have a local AND remote display. With VNC, I can't have both at the same time. I though  that I could have it thanks to SDL (for local) and VNC (for remote).

Is there a way, with VNC, to configure two access (local and remote) to the VM at the same time?

You can't have both. You have to choose one, and VNC is the only sane
one to choose. SDL sucks because if your X session dies, it kills the
SDL window & thus kills your VM. Not cool. The 'virt-viewer' program
can be used to popup a minimal window for a VNC display whether local
or remote.
