Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 492829
virt-manager console should only scale console when maximised or fullscreen
Last modified: 2009-09-14 11:50:32 EDT
Description of problem:
virt-manager should not scale the console unless necessary: ie unless it is too big to fit on the screen or the console window is made larger.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot guest OS
1. console is "scaled"
1. fedora defaults to 800x600 so no need to scale
I have a sense of deja vu: I seem to remember this having come up before and having been fixed already?
It is annoying to have to keep turning off scaling and scaling down the window to the actual size.
Not completely sure if this also affects 0.7 in rawhide - it may do. I don't have a baremetal rawhide box to test on currently.
Does setting the "Graphical Console Scaling == Fullscreen" preference help ?
Virt-manager 0.6.1 doesn't have the 'Only scale when fullscreen' option that is present in 0.7.0 (the version in rawhide). The verdict is still out on whether 0.7.0 will be backported to F10 (I'm thinking it will), so moving to POST in the interim.
removing needinfo flag
I think it's too late to be backporting a major virt-manager version to F10, so
moving this bug F11 (where it is fixed) and closing as CURRENTRELEASE.
