Hi there,

I've an interest in using VGA passthrough, but something that seems to be unclear from any info or video examples given is what happens when the domU with access to the VGA device terminates?

Does the dom0 regain control of the VGA device? Does that work flawlessly? Will the dom0 be able to start an X server again?
