Bug Description

$ qemu-system-x86_64 -enable-kvm -display sdl,gl=on -vga qxl
SDL1 display code has no opengl support.
Please recompile qemu with SDL2, using
./configure --enable-sdl --with-sdlabi=2.0
qemu-system-x86_64: OpenGL support is disabled

Can you please recompile qemu with support for opengl. The -display mode allows for opengl support.

This feature allows for the guest OS to have opengl 2 support, that is require for several 3d applications.
It also opens the way for supporting acceleration on windows and Linux guest systems.

Since you're talking about a pre-compiled binary, I assume you wanted to open this bug against Ubuntu's QEMU package, not against the QEMU project?

Opengl in general as requested was enabled and backported up to Bionic (18.04).

There are several usability enhancements to use that with either mdev passthrough and virtgl which I work on upstream and are going into Disco (19.04).
