Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 204702
Memory Slider Too Coarse
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:41 EST
Description of problem: Slider for available RAM too coarse.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start virt-manager
2. Go to "Machine Details -> Hardware -> Memory
3. It's virtualy (no pun intended) impossible to "tune" the amount of memory.
It shows my current usage of 1883 of 2047 as the extreme lower end. Any attempt
to adjust it has the numbers swinging wildly up to a maximum of 16777215.0.
I'd like to be able to tune the memory in a much finer grain, it's completely
unusble right now (but I'm sure it's gonna get much better).
I am changing the UI to use a spinbox instead of a slider which will provide
accurate control of memory allocation.
The virt-manager 0.2.1-1 package in rawhide now uses a spinbox instead of
slider for all memory controls.
