Description ericm24x7 2007-06-30 17:12:16 EDT
Description of problem: when running qemu-kvm under under "-vnc" option, 2 pointer cursors are being display and out of sync when seen from the remote monitor. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): kvm.x86_64 28-1.fc8 qemu.x86_64 0.9.0-2.fc7 How reproducible: persisten Steps to Reproduce: 1. command executed specific to my system: qemu-kvm -boot c -localtime -usbdevice tablet -vnc :84 -monitor stdio hda /a/img/fdev -m 400 -net nic,vlan=84,macaddr=52:54:00:12:44:84 -net tap,vlan=84,ifname=tap84,script=/a/q/qifup.tap 2. assuming the IP address quest VM is bind to bridge IP (192.168.3.80) from a remote client viewer execute: vncviewer 192.168.3.80::5984 Actual results: Observer the double cursors diverging. Expected results: using "-usbdevice tablet" should have resolved the above problem, but it does NOT.

Using '-usbdevice tablet' provides the neccessary virtual hardware to enable the OS to be configured to have sane pointer. It does not neccessarily solve it on its own. Windows will autodetect & configure a USB tablet. Linux will not - /etc/X11/xorg.conf needs manual editing to enable the USB tablet & disable the PS/2 mouse. Please provide info on what guest OS you're using ?

It failed on FC7 release. I am testing it on the latest rawhide but I'm getting kernel panic on x86_64 during boot-up install, and on i386 install I'm getting traceback from anaconda. I'm not sure how to capture the kernel panic through KVM piped to serial console, any suggestion? eric

I just tested the latest rawhide build dated 9-20-07 (also tested on F8test2) and the diverging mouse pointer problem exist only when you run qemu-kvm from the REMOTE terminal/viewer. There is no problem when running from the host terminal. Host and Guest OS are the same build: kernel x86_64 2.6.23-0.185.rc6.git7.fc8 kvm x86_64 36-2.fc8 qemu x86_64 0.9.0-4.fc8 eric

Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported during the development of Fedora 8. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are changing the version of this bug to '8'. If this bug still exists in rawhide, please change the version back to rawhide. (If you're unable to change the bug's version, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.) Thanks for your help and we apologize for the interruption. The process we're following is outlined here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/F9CleanUp We will be following the process here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping to ensure this doesn't happen again.

I couldn't test this on the latest FC9 build (4/22/08) due to PXE VNC install failing. Works OK for FC8 and updating to FC9 rawhide. So I say for now it looks OK.
