Is there some way to attach more than one display device to a VM with openstack?

We're looking for some way to do this, preferably using KVM as our hypervisor, but Google hasn't returned much in the way of useful information.

There is, but it's not pretty at the moment :(

Basically, unless specific support in OpenStack is added for manipulating video devices, you have to go into the libvirt.xml file and manually modify it.

I'd recommend posting about your needs on the openstack mailing list ( ) so they can be captured and we can make a better story.
