How do i able to change the video type of my nova instances? because by default it is using cirrus and on my case it generates blurry graphics on my instance. It is working fine if I am using in the virt-install (as "vga"), but when uploading to the openstack as previous mentioned it will get the serious cirrus problems on the graphics.

On testing using this command: lspci | grep VGA

As per read some article that "vga" support resolutions >= 1280x1024x16 while "cirrus" as a simple graphics card.

I read on the this link please see link text

And the blueprint on this one but I am not using PowerKVM, link text

I used to solved this by manually editing the This file used to create the xml of the instances created. My ubuntu instances need still to modify the video RAM as it will not suffice the 9Mb default allocation. Right now my instances are very happy.
