Minor update for Qemu 0.14.0

I simply can’t take the ‘sendkey ctrl-alt-delete’ shuffle anymore. So I investigated the ui/sdl.c and it seemed somewhat easy to do…

keycode = sdl_keyevent_to_keycode(&ev->key);
switch(keycode) {
case 0x20: /* ‘d’ key on US keyboard */
kbd_put_keycode(0x1d); /* left ctrl key */
kbd_put_keycode(0x38); /* left alt key */
kbd_put_keycode(0xd3); /* delete key */
break;
case 0x21: /* ‘f’ key on US keyboard */
toggle_full_screen(ds);
gui_keysym = 1;
break;
case 0x16: /* ‘u’ key on US keyboard */

So what does this mean? Hitting ctrl-alt-d will now send a contrl-alt-delete. Woo. I’ve updated my binary for Qemu 0.14.0 here.

It certainly makes logging into Windows NT & friends significantly easier.

As an update the CAD worked for some things, but not others.. so after some printf’s in the input module I came up with this…

kbd_put_keycode(56);
kbd_put_keycode(29);
kbd_put_keycode(157);
kbd_put_keycode(184);
kbd_put_keycode(29);
kbd_put_keycode(56);
kbd_put_keycode(224);
kbd_put_keycode(83);
kbd_put_keycode(224);
kbd_put_keycode(211);
break;

which basically is slamming every possible combination of control/alt/delete. And the rest of you will have to download yet again for this update.
