Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 232580
mouse pointers not synronised in GUI mode in vncfb on a VM's
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:42 EST
Description of problem:
Mouse pointers are not syncornised b/w the VM and host in vncfb GUI mode.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL 5 GA.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Do an install using virt-install
2. Start GUI mode install.
There are now two mouse pointers on the screen and they never seem to meet and
The mouse pointers must be syncronised or the mouse pointer needs to be grabbed
by the GUI mode on the VM.
Is the unsynchronised mouse issue something that engineering will fix for 5.1?
Or is it something that just needs to be release noted? If its something that
should be release noted I think its too tate for 5.0. However, I think there is
a version of release notes on Redhat.com if need be.
Brian, can you check with the virt-list and see what the procedure is for
correcting this behavior? Not sure if this is an engineering issue or not. If it
is procedural, we should kbase it.
Do we have any idea which way this one is going? kbase or fix? Just trying
to get a sense of where this is going with regard to RHEL5.1 so there are
fewer surprises. Thanks.
re-assigning this to VIRTUALIZATION component; i think the component owner can
provide a better answer to Comment#4.
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. Since this
bugzilla is in a component that is not approved for the current
release, it has been closed with resolution deferred. You may
reopen this bugzilla for consideration in the next release.
Found this workaround:
This seems sufficient to close this issue.
resolved as a kbase fix. Thanks to Charles Rose for pointing this out.
