Qemu + kvm experienced user tips requested


Hi !

I'm going to use kvm guests as production desktops.

The guest will (sadly) be XP, and i wonder if there's some tweaks to do, especially with the mouse fluidity, because i noticed it's not as good as vmware's vmplayer.

Have you some nice tricks to share files between host and guest ?

Is there some path to avoid (some problematic hardware, software etc...)

Of course i'll post anything of interest i'll find.

if you using the qemu there is an easy way to access files by creating image and mount it as an cdrom in qemu by -cdrom option
and if you wann to mount an usb drive use -usb and -usbdevice vonder_id product_id which is the best way to mount any usb device to the emmulator. and conform the device is not already used.
and if your emmulator look like slow you use the pentium3 as value of -cpu option because qemu works on pentium2 as default and also install kqemu accerlator to speed up the qemu.

feed me if it helpfull if any problem also tell.........

I found these options very useful :

To have a better screen resolution :
-vga std

To have a more free mouse :
-usb -usbdevice tablet

To get time from the host :
-localtime

To get access to Linux media. Then browse 10.0.2.4 to see them :
-smb /media
