I’m not sure, but isn’t one supposed to use -display sdl instead of -sdl?
Either works, I don’t think -sdl is going away any time soon.
this looks handy and I may give it another try, but my past experiences with qemu have always ended after an hour of frustration and never having got anything up and running. would love to know if it is just my choices in guests and hosts . . .
I hadn’t heard of Spice. Shame it’s GPL, it would’ve been pretty useful, otherwise. I’ve been looking for ways to attach a display to a VM besides opening native windows. Right now my best idea is RDP, but I fear that protocol.
Why not -vnc 127.0.0.1:0, or a libvirt equivalent? That option has been around for a long time, and you can connect with any VNC viewer, including the one built into macOS’s remote desktop.
VNC is an option I should’ve thought of. Libvirt isn’t really from my understanding. I’m not actually wanting to connect to a fully-fledged “pretend it’s a computer” VM, but to get pixels to my screen from code written in things like go or node.
