[ps2] KDLs grabbing/releasing input in VMware

Reported by: j_freeman@… Owned by: marcusoverhagen

Description (last modified by marcusoverhagen)

In VMware, you can release control of a virtual machine (thereby regaining control of your host OS) by pressing Ctrl + Alt.

Sometimes you can go into KDL by doing this in VMware:

  1. Start up Haiku.
  2. Around the time it gets to the boot screen, press Ctrl + Alt to release


  1. When it finishes loading, move the mouse around (if not already in KDL).

I haven't pinpointed it down to be able to reproduce it 100% every time; it's very erratic.

Revision Linux build, running in VMware Workstation 5.5 on Windows XP.
