Description Jesse Keating 2007-09-05 14:57:09 EDT
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...
Comment 1 Daniel Berrange 2007-09-07 14:45:44 EDT
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 ?
Comment 2 Jesse Keating 2007-09-07 15:09:23 EDT
QEMU's VNC server.  For completeness, rawhide was being installed from 20070905.
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2007-10-23 17:39:55 EDT
Is this still a problem?
Comment 4 Jesse Keating 2007-10-25 15:50:49 EDT
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
