Re: Missing hvm output - really vnc hvm experience

Hello all,
When I started windows xp with vnc via the config file I notice that my mouse does not track well when I leave the vncviewer - that is when I come back in the dot is off from where the cursor mouse would expected to be. This makes it difficult to get to edges of the window since once the
dot leaves the window the cursor does not move.
If I install vncserver on the dom_u and run from there things are happier.

    Is this an windows XP issue (several have reported that windows XP did
not work as well as windows server) or a problem with using vnc from xen?


FWIW SDL seemed to work just fine (except I could not access it remotly via ssh - which might be expected).

Hello all,

I am experimenting with HVM support under NetBSD 4.0 Xen 3 and various install 
CD's and upon using a slightly modified included hvm configuration file, I get:

# xm create hvmtest.cfg
Using config file "./hvmtest.cfg".
Started domain hvm

The configuration file suggests that this should should bring up an xwindow.

I have tried this from within X, the console and with -c for what it's worth.

I can however see the DomU running with 'xm list'

/var/log/xen/qemu-dm.2148.log ends with:

I/O request not ready: 0, ptr: 0, port: 0, data: 0, count: 0, size: 0
Triggered log-dirty buffer switch

All dependencies for xentools3-hvm appear to be resolved.

Any suggestions?

Can you show your config file ? I've not used SDL support for a
long time; vnc support works nicely. But if using vnc, you have to start
vncviewer yourself :)
You can see if it's listening for vnc connections with netstat -a -f inet
(look for port 5900 and above)
