We noticed you removed the Qemu's default monitor & serial console in changeset 14609. As we didn't use qemu serial console frequently and also has "xm console", it can be removed. But for qemu monitor, I think we'd better to keep it by default, it is because it has become the important function of HVM. 1. We have to use monitor to switch CD-ROM files. This is significant when installation with multi CDs. 2. We need to use monitor to send the short combined keys to HVM (e.g. ctrl-alt-delete, ctrl-alt-f2 etc.). This is a "couldn't dropped" feature of HVM. :) So, how about adding it back?
Well, we can't change the default back, because that would not be secure. There's xm block-configure which lets you switch CD-ROM files. And there's a few things which could be done to further improve things: - plumb through the monitor option to the domain config file and the xend config file - fix xm console so it can connect to the monitor pty - add an xm send-key command christian _______________________________________________ Xen-devel mailing list Xen-devel@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx http://lists.xensource.com/xen-devel
