Description

This test case verifies that the paravirt framebuffer works correctly for Fedora Xen DomU.


How to test

  1. Make sure that the F-11 domU is configured to have a framebuffer. For instance, on a RHEL-5 dom0, make sure that the vfb parameter in the /etc/xen/f11 config file looks like
    vfb = [ "type=vnc,vncunused=1" ]
  2. If you made changes to the config file, make sure to shutdown and start the F-11 guest again.
  3. Inside the guest, enter runlevel 5 (if you haven't already done so), and check that there are no visual artifacts when using X, dragging around windows, etc.
  4. Still inside the guest, open up an application that will use scrolling (Firefox is a good example), and try to scroll with your mouse.

Expected Results

  1. No visual artifacts during normal usage.
  2. The scroll wheel should work inside the guest.
