A minor update.  I recently tried using Prime OS, a branch Android X86, and the mouse navigation in VNC is no longer an issue.  

 

I'm installing some Amcrest and Wyze apps in the PrimeOS VM to give it a try.

I'm installing some Amcrest and Wyze apps in the PrimeOS VM to give it a try.

 

Confirmed. This works very well. Mouse and keyboard work perfectly. Internet works well. There is an option to trick apps into thinking android is on wifi, which is sometimes needed. 

 

I had some issues with it running very slow and crashing.  This was due to memory allocation. I think I had initial set to 1GB and max set to 2GB. Changed both to 4GB and it runs nice and fast now. 

 

I couldn't get it to boot correctly on its own under OVMF bios. I could get it to boot with the install iso loaded, I had to select "upgrade" from the install iso menu.

Reinstalled with seaBIOS and it boot fine.

 

So relevant info from my install that may help others:

Initial and max memory set both to the same, something higher than 1GB, mine is set to 4GB

Machine: Q35-3.0 (though i440fx-3.0 also worked)

BIOS: SeaBIOS

vDisk bus: SATA

 

 

Would like to find a way to access a user share or mount some storage outside the VM image file.

Thanks for the update @kimocal, neat to have this finally working well!

@kimocal @bnevets27 I'm having an issue whereby the Prime OS VM I installed has a memory leak. Even the vanilla, fresh installation with nothing else. I confirmed it using "watch free -m" at the shell (Alt+F1, then Alt+F7 to get back to UI) and saw the "free" column gradually go down. The VM would eventually seize up and become unusable. I tried both the Standard and Mainline 0.4.5. I used the same VM settings as everyone else seems to. I even tried both Machine types (Q35-3.1 and i440fx-3.1). See attached VM settings and Kernel version screenshots below. 

 

Has anyone run into this or can confirm my results?
