RFE: change default for "USB controller" to "USB 2"
Last modified: 2013-10-02 16:29:08 EDT
Description of problem:
When creating or changing the hardware configuration of a KVM guest using virt-manager, you have the possibility to add a "Controller USB" device. You can also specify the model of this device. The two options for model are "Default" and "USB 2". I incorrectly assumed that these two would be the same. When using USB redirection through a SPICE client to the KVM guest, I could not get the redirection to work. It became clear that this only works when the model for "Controller USB" is set to "USB 2".
I would like to suggest that the default for adding a "Controller USB" device to a KVM guest is changed to "USB 2".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Create a guest with the Default Controller USB model and try to redirect a host USB device to the guest using for instance virt-viewer. The USB device on the host can be selected, but it fails immediately. Then change to "USB 2" and it will work.
Steps to Reproduce:
Fixed upstream, we use USB2 as the default for new guests
