Daniel P. Berrange announced<ref>http://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-virt/2009-February/msg00083.html</ref> an improvement to mouse pointer movement in Fedora 10 and 11 <code>KVM</code> guests.
 
 
 
"The default mouse for KVM guests is a PS/2 mouse. This causes pain for users
 
because it only works with relative coordinates, which means we are forced to
 
grab the mouse pointer in the VNC client.
 
 
 
KVM can emulate a USB graphics tablet which works in absolute coordinate mode,
 
and thus gives flawless mouse motion tracking without needing any grab in the
 
client." <ref>https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=487025</ref>
 
 
 
USB tablet will now be used by default {{package|python-virtinst}} in F11.

Fedora as you might think. The {{package|libvirt}} mgmt stack in RHEL-5.4 was

rebased to be near parity with [[Releases/11|Fedora 11]], and KVM in RHEL-5.4 is

also pretty close to that using what's best described as a hybrid of

kvm-83 and kvm-84."
  
Deferred to Fedora 12 was:

* http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/KVM_and_QEMU_merge
 
 
On the <code>KVM</code> and <code>QEMU</code> merge, Daniel P. Berrange explained<ref>http://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-virt/2009-February/msg00094.html</ref> that "The <code>QEMU</code> upstream release will be so close to the feature freeze, that we don't
 
want to risk causing <code>KVM</code> regressions by trying to then merge the two.
 
Hopefully come F12, more of the <code>KVM</code> bits will be in <code>QEMU</code> mainline, so
 
work we need todo to merge would be minimal."

Virtualization

In this section, we cover discussion of Fedora virtualization technologies on the @fedora-virt list.

Contributing Writer: Dale Bewley

Fedora Virtualization List

This section contains the discussion happening on the fedora-virt list.

Virt Status Report

Justin Forbes posted[1] a Fedora virtualization status report. Justin pointed out F13 bugs[2] now include Important and Pony classifications in addition to Blocker and Target.

RHEL and Fedora Virtualization Feature Parity

Robert Day wondered how the virtualization features[1] of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.4 compared to Fedora 12.

Daniel Berrange explained[2] "The KVM based virtualization in RHEL-5.4 is not nearly so far behind Fedora as you might think. The Package-x-generic-16.pnglibvirt mgmt stack in RHEL-5.4 was rebased to be near parity with Fedora 11, and KVM in RHEL-5.4 is also pretty close to that using what's best described as a hybrid of kvm-83 and kvm-84."
