the vinagre window will steal my keyboard and mouse, but any keyboard input,
other than things like tab, or F12, or enter, will not be shown. I cannot enter
a password during installation, I cannot use the arrow keys at a syslinux boot
prompt (qemu vnc), etc...
For sake of reproducing this accurately can you tell me what VNC server you're
pointing to. Is it QEMU's VNC server, or are you running QEMU with its SDL
graphics and then pointing Vinagre to Anaconda's builtin VNC server ? If the
latter what distro are you installing ?
QEMU's VNC server. For completeness, rawhide was being installed from 20070905.
Is this still a problem?
Intermittent, and it may be due to my window manager. Sometimes it stops taking
some input, like space bars and letters, but will take enter. Sometimes I get
double mouse pointers too. Often it's enough to break out (<ctrl><alt>) and
change desktops/change back.
I don't really have a good way of triggering it, so I'll keep an eye out for any
