RE: [Xen-devel] RE: [PATCH] USB support


Which is why we still provide PS/2 mouse, either through USB or through
PS/2 port.  For the legacy OS's running under SDL this is sufficient.
Running a legacy OS under VNC, if you want a usable mouse, then yes,
there will be some manual configuration required.
