qemuarm built from daisy has no mouse pointer display when run on darwin
Chris Hallinan <challinan@...>
I'm playing around with core-image-sato built for MACHINE=qemuarm, and running under qemu-system-arm on Mavericks. I'm using qemu version 2.1.2 from macports, and the qemuarm images were built from YP 1.6/Daisy.
My core-image-sato binaries (kernel/rootfs) run perfectly on the host on which it was built (U12.04) and in fact, runs fine on my Mavericks platform except there is no mouse pointer visible. When I move the mouse into the qemu window and click once, the mouse pointer disappears. I am getting mouse events from /dev/input/event1, and in fact, clicking around blindly I have determined that I can actually click on stuff and cause them to execute, it's just that there is no visible mouse pointer.
While I realize this is likely not a supported scenario, it would be hugely convenient for me in my workflow. I travel with a MB Air, and it's just too lightweight for a VM. Can anyone suggest how I might go about troubleshooting and/or discovering a possible workaround? Anyone have any ideas? Is there a better list where I might ask this question?
