Description Matthias Clasen 2006-10-20 10:25:30 EDT
It seems to go twice as fast as the "host pointer". I think I have this seen
discussed on virtualist ~2 months ago, but I still see the behaviour in todays
tree. It makes the graphical console effectively unusable.
Comment 1 RHEL Product and Program Management 2006-10-20 10:33:37 EDT
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux release.  Product Management has requested further review
of this request by Red Hat Engineering.  This request is not yet committed for
inclusion in release.

I'm also seeing this problem during graphical install on the 20061027.0 (Beta 2
Milestone 8) build of RHEL5. The mouse pointer moves too fast, just like
Matthias said.

QE ack for RHEL5 . . . there's another dup of this bug somewhere.
Comment 13 Markus Armbruster 2007-01-04 17:13:53 EST
Paravirtualized domains can currently auto-detect only relative mice,
and pointer movement is rather erratic with them.  This will be
addressed in a future update of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

Closing out.  Please ensure that a 5.1 bug is entered to track resolution of the
original issue.

Cloned for 5.1 as bug 223805
