Description Jim Meyering 2008-03-17 11:21:09 EDT
Description of problem: when I create a VM via virt-manager, the last step is to run virt-viewer on that new system as it boots. However, I don't see any syslinux output. That makes it hard to append " ks=http://long-url..." when you can't see what you're typing. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): virt-viewer-0.0.3-1.fc9.x86_64 How reproducible: every time Steps to Reproduce: 1.run virt-manager 2.as image, choose /var/lib/libvirt/images/Fedora-8-x86_64-rescuecd.iso, though any would probably do. 3.as file location, use /var/lib/libvirt/images/dd.img 4. hit FINISH, then in the virt-viewer window, once it goes blank, hit TAB Actual results: I see the "hit F10 for boot menu", but get 60 seconds of blank screen after that, during which I can hit TAB to talk to syslinux, and can hit "ENTER" (if I want to start the boot process), or blindly type " ks=http://whatever". If I don't type anything, syslinux times out and starts the usual boot process. Expected results: To see a prompt, as well as what I type, after hitting TAB. Additional info:

Using kvm? If so, this is the bug I forwarded to upstream last week. Holding shift while syslinux comes up will leave you at the text mode version
Comment 2 Jim Meyering 2008-03-17 16:31:48 EDT
Yes to kvm. I confirm that holding down SHIFT works. Thanks!
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2008-03-17 17:58:23 EDT
Okay, I'll either get the underlying bug fixed or we'll revert back to Cirrus for video by default for the final.
Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2008-04-01 12:23:49 EDT
Back to cirrus by default for now
Comment 5 Daniel Berrange 2008-04-21 22:24:46 EDT
Rawhide switched back to cirrus driver, so closing this bug.
