Description

Hi, after upgrading vbox 2.2.4 to vbox 3.0.0 keyboard become so sensitive that I can't login into Ubuntu guest anymore. For example if I type admin as userid I get something like: aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaddddddddddddddddddddmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmiiiiiiiiiinnnnnnnnnnnn

It looks all keys in keyboard are very sensitive, because <backspace> also deletes multiple characters.

Host (Windows XP) keyboard sensitivity is working OK. Keyboard sensitivity was also working OK on host and guset in vbox 2.2.4. So this is new bug in 3.0.0.

Host: Windows XP SP3 Guest: Ubuntu 9.04 desktop 32-bit VM: VitualBox 3.0.0

Regards

Hi, I have powered down guest. Deleted all log files. Started guest again. And now keyboard works fine - it looks only first time guest was booted with keyboard too sensitive. Strange... Regards

Hi, above log file is after second time when keyboard was not sensitive anymore. Don't know it this helps. So problem was solved by itself. Regards

If this happens again, please try to do

cat /proc/cpuinfo

inside the guest (yes, I know, this is very difficult when the keyboard is extremely sensitive). You could also try to login into the VM with ssh. The output of the above command (remember, from the guest not from the host!) would be interesting. We have some cases here where the guest Linux detected a wrong bogomips value during boot causing all kinds of timing issues...

I'm having similar problems after upgrading to 3.0.0. In addition to the multiple keystrokes I had spontaneous display timeouts where the screen would go blank and require unlock with username and password.

  • Summary changed from Vbox 3.0.0: Keyboard is so sensitive that I can't login into guest to Vbox 3.0.0: Keyboard is so sensitive that I can't login into guest => Please try 3.0.2

Doesn't look too bad but still, please try the upcoming maintenance release 3.0.2.

Hi,
I have installed 3.0.2 over 3.0.0 and keyboard was not sensitive after first boot. It looks like this problem is solved.
Regards

The problem seems to have cleared up after I installed 3.0.2.
