Description Bill C. Riemers 2007-06-09 16:46:02 UTC
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):


How reproducible:


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.
  
Actual results:

Real host switches to console 1.

Expected results:

Guest host switches to console 1.

The sequence is:
Ctrl
Ctrl
Ctrl
Alt+F1
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.

Comment 2 Bill C. Riemers 2007-06-12 15:45:58 UTC
The correct sequence works.
