Bug Fix Advisory virt-manager bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2007:0112-4
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2007-03-13
Last updated on: 2007-03-14
Affected Products: RHEL Desktop Multi OS (v. 5 client)
RHEL Virtualization (v. 5 server)

Details

An updated virt-manager package that improves usability of virtual console
mouse cursor is now available.

Virtual Machine Manager provides a graphical tool for administering virtual
machines such as Xen. It uses libvirt as the backend management API.

Due to limitations in the virtual mouse drivers, the virtual console window
for Xen guest domains shows two cursors which do not line up. After this
update the mouse pointer will automatically be confined to the virtual
console window upon first mouse click. The local cursor will also be hidden
so that only the virtual guest cursor is visible.

Users are advised to upgrade to this updated virt-manager package, which
resolves this issue.
