Sun Type-7 US/UNIX layout keyboard reportedly not fully supported

Description

I am using Sun Type 7 keyboard (US/UNIX layout, X3738A) with VirtualBox 2.0 on OpenSolaris nevada build 84.

I get the following warning (log file attached) when I start a virtual machine-

00:01:13.443 Your keyboard layout does not appear to fully supported by
00:01:13.443 VirtualBox. If you would like to help us improve the product,
00:01:13.443 please submit a bug report and attach this logfile.

Note that, in the attached file the suggested "correct" layout is actually wrong. This isn't a PC style keyboard but a UNIX one with ESC key left of "1" and Ctrl & Caps swapped (among other differences).

I am also attaching an image of the keyboard in case it helps.

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to invalid

Thanks for the report. In fact, that looks like a false positive on the part of the application (assuming that you don't actually have problems with keyboard support), so I will close this ticket.

Actually, could you check to see if VirtualBox 2.0.2 still produces this warning? Version 2.0.2 contains almost exclusively bug fixes over 2.0.0, so upgrading shouldn't be a problem.
