Re: vga video setting for kvm/libvirt virtual machine on openstack folsom
Thank you for this quick answer, spice could be a solution as the virtual appliance I plan to deploy (based on an iso livedvd) can use qxl video driver.

Unfortunatly as I am not a python dev, I 'm not able to correctly write a clean glance patch

There is no facility to change the video card directly at this time. The
only time it will change is if you enable spice, in which case it'll use
qxl instead of cirrus.
Adding a hw_video_model=xxxxx image property would be a reasonable addition
if you want to file a feature request, and/or supply a patch.
