Public bug reported: Ubuntu 8.04 with VirtualBox commercial version installed. Win98 and Win2K installed in virtual environments.
Problem: In virtual mode, keyboard and mouse entries appear to generate a HUGE number of event message if activated too long. If the system falls behind, these events can cause an apparent lockup while events are slowly acted out. No other keyboard or mouse activity is acknowledged during this time. The only thing that works is to momentarily press the power button, which brings up Ubuntu's exit dialog. However. other than shutting down, there is limited choice here. Suggested solution: Add a capability to purge the event message queue of all pending keyboard and mouse events as an added choice in the exit dialog. If this is performed, it would appear to instantaneously restore keyboard and mouse input capability. ** Affects: ubuntu Importance: Undecided Status: New -- Ubuntu + VirtualBox = Runaway Message Queue https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/234852 You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu Bugs, which is subscribed to Ubuntu. -- ubuntu-bugs mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-bugs
