Keyboard inoperative on Solaris 10 or Solaris 8 guest

Description (last modified by michaln) (diff)

Host: 64bit Debian 4.0 (Etch)

Tested on 1.5.6 (S8 and S10 guest), and 1.6.0 (S10 guest), keyboard input works correctly on both versions of the Solaris installer up until the point where the kernel is booted (i.e. kbd input to boot loader works fine). S10 appears to recognise no keyboard input, S8 on 1.5.6 doesn't accept anything until the return key is pressed, and then it behaves as if the 'a' key is being held down.

S10 guest keyboard input appears to work OK on 1.6.0 when ACPI is disabled.

Same problem under Gentoo (P4 HT, kernel 2.6.26), VBox 1.6.2 OSE, guest Solaris 8. After booting the kernel keyboard does not work.

comment:4 Changed 4 years ago by frank

  • Summary changed from Keyboard inoperative on Solaris 10 or Solaris 8 guest (64bit Debian Etch host) to Keyboard inoperative on Solaris 10 or Solaris 8 guest

The Solaris 8 problem will be fixed in the upcoming 3.1.0 release (you can try the Beta 1).

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Description modified (diff)

This was fixed a long time ago (in version 3.1.0 as the previous comment indicates).
