Loss of keyboard when guest OS boots up

Reported by: chensp Owned by:

This is a strange problem, as there was no problem during installation of guest OS. Here is the setup information:

Host: Linux Ubuntu Drapper (i386)

Guest: Linux CentOS 4.0 (i386)

The installation of the guest OS went fine, but as soon as the guest system reboots, the keyboard is completely lost. It is lost on the host as well on the guest. Mouse is still working fine. no keyboard. Guest OS boots up properly.

The only way to get back the keyboard is to reboot the host.

I tried this several times, with the same result. Start up VB GUI, everything is still working fine. Then boot up the guest OS. As soon as the guest OS starts booting, keyboard is gone.

I moved the guest OS to a Windows XP (SP3) host, and everything works correctly.

I assume that terminating the guest does not solve the issue. What about restarting X?
