Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 211618
Mouse pointer unusable in the graphical console
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:35 EST
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.
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
*** Bug 212977 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
QE ack for RHEL5 . . . there's another dup of this bug somewhere.
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
Cloned for 5.1 as bug 223805
