Description Lebenskuenstler 2010-07-14 16:50:09 EDT
Description of problem:

I did install a Windows 7 using virt-manager and qemu-kvm as hypervisor. I need to use the US international layout. In Win7 using virt-manager this does not work.

I started the Windows 7 image by using qemu-kvm from the command line in order to avoid the use of virt-manager, there AltGr key works.

I already tried  libvirt.x86_64 0:0.8.2-1.fc13 from updates-testing.

if you 'virsh edit $vmname' and remove the keymap= piece from <graphics>, restart the guest, do things get better?
Comment 4 Cole Robinson 2010-07-14 17:15:48 EDT
Pretty sure this is just 586201
