Finding that Boxes is a lot more enjoyable than using VirtualBox.

@kion gnome boxes? I found machines repeatedly crashing on reload and generally lacked features.

@malin So far I haven't gotten a chance to use it much, but I like the UI, I like the easy install, and the method they use for keyboard and mouse capture makes it a lot easier to use. So for limited use it seems to work well.

@kion I have to say it was a godsend the first time I fired up a VM, and it was one click-go. Hopefully its less buggy now.

@malin @kion encountered a bug where RDP scheme triggered a response loop in journald when attempts at connecting to a host failed. The same response is spammed indefinitely. This occurred during the flurry of news around the journald exploit employing a similar technique.

I suck at feedback both interpersonally and electronically...

@nergal Is this to do with Gnome Boxes? Does it use RDP somewhere?

@malin
Yes. It does rdp, spice, vnc among other schemes.

Mine is not the same as bugs.archlinux.org/task/60118. It is similar though

Mine is similar to bugs.archlinux.org/task/60118. Instead it is something to do with failure to authenticate because of NLA (?) version difference I guess.
