  • Thread-topic: Xen 3.1.0 - vkbd Device not starting

When using virtual frame buffer directive in the domU config file:

vfb= [ 'type=xxx,....]

vbd gets started but vbkd device cannot start, so is this the race
condition that was discussed a while ago (patched in april I think) ?

Error: Device 0 (vkbd) could not be connected. Hotplug scripts not working

This problem was in 3.1-testing and 3.-unstable and now appears to be
in 3.1 (downloaded today).

Any ideas much appreciated.


Jon -

I ran into something similar not too long ago.  Do you have xen-vncfb installed?  Check /usr/lib64/xen/bin (or something like it).  Check out the thread from the Xen CIM list for more info.


BTW, changing the Config.mk file did not help me thus far, but by at least doing the manual make of vncfb I have a work-around.
