Thanks, that explains, no usb-tablet (which is ok for spice since the agent is better,
usb-tablet causes a significant cpu usage even when idle), but also no ps2 mouse, so no
emulation at all. I believe this is an ovirt bug.
On second thought, scrap that. My bad, given how the commandline has -nodefconfig
which means no default devices are created and there was no -device for a ps2 mouse on
cmdline I assumed that there would be no ps2 mouse emulation enabled in the vm. However
wrong my reasoning was too logical and the qemu cmdline is not always logical... Despite
the -nodefconfig -nodefaults the vm will include ps2 mouse emulation. So this is *not* an
Still this exercise was not without result, what it shows is that using spice with a
relative mouse (or server mode mouse in spice terms) is not working for you Chris.
This probably is an issue with the spice client you are using. Chris, I've some
to help us debug this:
1) In what way is the mouse not working, not working at all, or ... ?
2) Which client are you using (spicec, spicy, virt-viewer)?
3) Which version of this client are you using?
4) On which platform/os is the client running
5) Did you build the client from source, or downloaded it somewhere, if
you downloaded it, where from?
6) Which version of qemu and spice-server are you using on the host,
if the hosed is rpm based, can you please do rpm -q qemu spice-server
and include the output in your reply?
