Description Matthias Clasen 2006-10-20 14:25:30 UTC
It seems to go twice as fast as the "host pointer". I think I have this seen
discussed on virtualist ~2 months ago, but I still see the behaviour in todays
tree. It makes the graphical console effectively unusable.

Comment 1 RHEL Product and Program Management 2006-10-20 14:33:37 UTC
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux release.  Product Management has requested further review
of this request by Red Hat Engineering.  This request is not yet committed for
inclusion in release.

Comment 2 Gary Case 2006-11-03 14:57:32 UTC
I'm also seeing this problem during graphical install on the 20061027.0 (Beta 2
Milestone 8) build of RHEL5. The mouse pointer moves too fast, just like
Matthias said.

Comment 5 Jay Turner 2006-12-01 14:50:51 UTC
QE ack for RHEL5 . . . there's another dup of this bug somewhere.

Comment 13 Markus Armbruster 2007-01-04 22:13:53 UTC
Paravirtualized domains can currently auto-detect only relative mice,
and pointer movement is rather erratic with them.  This will be
addressed in a future update of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

Comment 20 Jay Turner 2007-01-19 13:44:52 UTC
Closing out.  Please ensure that a 5.1 bug is entered to track resolution of the
original issue.

Comment 21 Stephen Tweedie 2007-01-30 16:39:43 UTC
Cloned for 5.1 as bug 223805
