Actual results: The mouse cursor is not visible Expected results: The mouse cursor is visible Additional info:
Comment 1 Martin Krizek 2012-04-05 08:24:53 EDT
Proposing as F17 Beta blocker, since it makes KDE desktop unusable.
Comment 2 Jaroslav Reznik 2012-04-05 10:40:04 EDT
I can't reproduce it as my virt-manager does not want to grab mouse - any hint here?
Comment 3 Adam Williamson 2012-04-05 11:08:04 EDT
I can't reproduce with qxl/spice, works fine. -- Fedora Bugzappers volunteer triage team https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers
Comment 4 Adam Williamson 2012-04-05 11:09:33 EDT
reproduced with qxl/vnc, which is never a default config.

> reproduced with qxl/vnc, which is never a default config. We can't assume that in general - since qxl provides basic VGA capabilities when used without SPICE, it is perfectly reasonable to use QXL + VNC. So while virt-manager doesn't do this by default, it is acceptable for apps to enable QXL by default.

Changing to QEMU on basis of Cole's URL
Comment 9 Adam Williamson 2012-04-06 00:10:13 EDT
dberrange: as far as blocker status goes, we mostly consider fedora's 'supported vm stack', which is taken to be virt-manager / libvirt / qemu / kvm. Discussed at 2012-04-05 go/no-go meeting - http://meetbot.fedoraproject.org/fedora-meeting-1/2012-04-05/gono-go_continuation_f17_beta_rc3_part_two_or_three.2012-04-05-15.00.html . We agreed that as the qxl/vnc combination has never been default in the supported stack (see above), it's easy to 'work around' this bug by switching to cirrus/vnc or qxl/spice, and the bug is not in the guest but the host (and so we don't gain much by fixing it in the release images) this bug is rejected as a blocker. It is not accepted as NTH, for the reason that fixing it in the images doesn't actually change much. Anyone running a host can be expected to have the latest updates on the host. -- Fedora Bugzappers volunteer triage team https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers
