I am attempting to run virt-viewer via a CYGWIN X session on my Windows laptop, but am getting all sorts of errors when I do.
From a CYGWIN session, I run startx, then ssh –X to the KVM Host server. From there I run the following command:
[root kvmhost1 ~]# virt-viewer rhel6guest
And the virt-viewer window does display, however with no readable font on the task bar, just a bunch of rectangles. After a few minutes the virt-viewer screen dies, too.
Below are the errors I get when running the virt-viewer command:
Xlib: extension "RANDR" missing on display "localhost:10.0".
(virt-viewer:18802): Gdk-WARNING **: Connection to display localhost:10.0 appears to be untrusted. Pointer and keyboard grabs and inter-client communication may not work as expected.
(virt-viewer:18802): Pango-WARNING **: failed to choose a font, expect ugly output. engine-type='PangoRenderFc', script='latin'
Gdk-ERROR **: The program 'virt-viewer' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)'.
(Details: serial 523 error_code 3 request_code 41 minor_code 0)
(Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)
Anyone have any insights?
