[Qemu-discuss] SIGSEV when using egl-headless on a headless server

I'm trying to use qemu with the egl-headless display display on a headless 
Unfortunately, I get a segmentation fault (see below) when running 

I assume this is because OpenGL isn't initialized correctly, perhaps because 
there's no X server running.

Is this a supported scenario? Is there anything I can do to troubleshoot this 




I'm running qemu 3.0, virglrenderer master and libepoxy master (all compiled 
from source) on a headless server running Ubuntu 18.04.
The GPU is an Intel Iris Pro Graphics P580.

I'm using the following command to boot QEMU:

qemu-system-x86_64 \
    -enable-kvm \
    -m 2048 -smp 2 -cpu host \
    -device virtio-mouse-pci -device virtio-keyboard-pci \
    -serial mon:stdio \
    -netdev user,id=mynet,hostfwd=tcp::5555-:5555 -device 
virtio-net-pci,netdev=mynet \
    -vga virtio \
    -display egl-headless \
    -vnc \
    -hda android-x86.qcow2

I've debugged the process using gdb and got the following stack trace:

In frame 4, I can see version_str is NULL, which would explain the exception.
