Any person who can answer this question will make my life alot easier.
I am running numerous Linux servers and would like to use one monitor and
keyboard for all machines. I have purchased a "multi function switch-box"
allowing 4x VGA/serial/keyboard to be switched.
It is purely a passive/manual device.
The problem I am experiencing is this:
On a DOS box, switching between machines is seemless. Under Linux it doesn't
work. The keyboard will not respond when actuating the switch. All
motherboards are running standard AT 5 pin DIN connections, NOT PS2. The
kernals are all Slackware 2.0.20 and better.
I have allready cooked one keyboard controller rendering a test machine
useless in my endeavor.
The switch is a "break then make" type which may be of some help.
I was also wondering if connecting the keyboard clock output from the
keyboard to all the linux boxes may help. I have not tryed anything else
since the last drama with the cooked keyboard controller.
Even the smallest ideas you have may help. Thanks in advance.
