Interesting, maybe the PV framebuffer is limited.

Anyway, why do you use PV framebuffer, it's not a good solution. I suggest:

- SSH display forwarding
- VNC running on a local X
- Nomachine or Free NX

My suggestion is XDMCP and if the machine is far away, then FreeNX or Nomachine NX.

Did you try adding 1024x768 to xorg.conf ?

Doesn't work :-(

The issue is the framebuffer size which is 800x600.   X reports finding a framebuffer of that size and uses that.

I tried adding "vga=ask" to the pv guest's boot line and that was just ignored.
