Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 811760
virt-manager no longer shows which pts the guests ttyS0 console maps to
Last modified: 2012-08-09 19:23:59 EDT
Description of problem:
In older versions of virt-manager, you could click on the vm property window and it would show the current /dev/pts/XX that ttyS0 was connected to. It no longer displays that information, just a useless "(pts)".
So I end up having to try all /dev/pts/* to find my serial console.
It would be nice to get that feature back
