Text console problem with qemu-kvm cirrus/SDL
Last modified: 2009-04-20 09:23:48 EDT
Description of problem:
In text mode as soon as all available lines on screen are used, cursor go outside of console area and is not visible more.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. qemu-kvm -localtime -hda centos-5.img -boot c
2. boot in text mode (runlevel 3)
3. login and press <enter> 30 times
current position of cursor is not accessible - outside of screen area.
scrolling, cursor is in last line of text screen.
`less` do not work.
in original version kvm-84.tar.gz there is the same problem.
Sergei: is this also reproducible if you do?
$> qemu-kvm -localtime -hda centos-5.img -boot c -vnc localhost:0
$> vncviewer localhost
if not, then the bug is specific to the SDL backend
Bug is resolved after some updates. I do not found this problem in qemu-0.10-8.fc11. Current version of SDL is:
[root@homedesk download]# rpm -qa | grep SDL
PS: I think, this bug report should be closed
