Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:07 EST
Description of problem:
According to the FAQ, libvirt uses sticky keys to send special characters to the
virtual host. An explicit example given is Ctrl Ctrl Ctrl+Alt+F1 to change to
virtual console 1.
However, no matter what I attempt the Ctrl+Alt+F1 is always interpreted by the
real host instead...
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a virtual Fedora 7 qemu guest.
2. Login on the virtual machine
3. Attempt to the virtual console 1 on the guest.
Real host switches to console 1.
Guest host switches to console 1.
The sequence is:
And I'm sure it work for Xen. Can you retry with the correct sequence ?
I don't think it's a bug, and I don't think we can avoid the X11 server
from grabing the Zap sequence.
The correct sequence works.
