QEMU mouse responsive issue

Post by theskyboy »

It seems mouse cursor in QEMU guest os is very unresponsive. This causes the guest system very hard to use. Basilisk and sheepshaver don't have this issue. Does anyone experience this problem?

Which OS are you emulating? and what is your command line.

Hi,

I'm running System 9.2.2 guest OS under macOS Mojave host OS.

The command file:

#!/bin/bash
cd "$(dirname "$0")"

./qemu-system-ppc -L pc-bios -m 1024 -M mac99,via=pmu -boot c \
-prom-env 'auto-boot?=true' -prom-env 'boot-args=-v' -prom-env 'vga-ndrv?=true' \
-drive file=./vm/mac-os-9.2.img,format=raw,media=disk \
-netdev user,id=network01 -device sungem,netdev=network01 \
-device VGA,edid=on \

The guest system is running ok, but it just the mouse cursor is react a bit slow, almost impossible to do any real work. it makes my hand feeling tired after playing around the guest system. Have you encounter the same issue? Any idea why?

Thanks

That all looks OK to me.
You can increase the mouse speed in the mouse control panel, see if that helps.

Try

Code: Select all

-M mac99
instead of

Code: Select all

-M mac99,via=pmu
.
