Description Cole Robinson 2012-10-30 02:49:52 UTC
F18 host, F18 guest, using qxl+spice, but also reproduced with cirrus + spice. Most times when I start the guest and it hits GDM, ctrl+alt+f[2-6] don't register any effect. If I log in, same result, no screen flicker or anything.

However if I telinit 3, login, telinit 5, ctrl+alt+* start working as expected, dropping me to a tty.

Reproduced with both virt-manager and virt-viewer so probably not an application issue.

I'm unable to reproduce this with a F18 guest with spice using virt-manager:

Can't seem to reproduce again with a fully updated F18 vm, so closing.
