I’m trying to host Haiku OS inside QEMU KVM (I’m using virt-manager with it because its what the Haiku docs said to use) and I have a 2560x1440 monitor which I’d like to make full use of. I’ve tried all of QEMU’s available graphics drivers (Xen, Serrius, QXL, VGA, VMVGA, etc) and none of them have the correct resolution, which seems strange to me because its a quite common resolution on modern monitors. My old laptop had the same resolution as well (the new one is 4K, heaven forbid I try to get Haiku working there!).
I’d really like to make Haiku a workable development environment, I already have Spacemacs working and a nice little dev setup, so maybe I could contribute to the community somehow. Honestly, Haiku is one of the coolest OS ideas I’ve ever seen, and its actually really making progress and gaining attention, so I’m trying to see how much of my development environment I can transfer to it. Part of that is having a correct resolution, I’d like to avoid just choosing 1920x1080 and having QEMU scale up.
I’ve already tried doing this at the QEMU end the only way I could think of (following this link: https://www.tablix.org/~avian/blog/archives/2013/05/custom_display_resolutions_in_qemu/) but that’s for a very old version of QEMU and the VGA roms are nowhere to be found in the modern source tree.
Can anyone help? Thanks!
