Mouse on KVM Switchbox problems....

Post by Sean DeLessi » Mon, 29 Nov 1999 04:00:00



I recently upgraded to Redhat v6.1, from 6.0.  On 6.0, I could switch
between my Pcs on my KVM switchbox with no problem.  Now, whenever I
switch off of the Linux box, or if the Linux box is not chosen on the
KVM switch at boot, I get VERY erratic mouse behavior.  All of the
movements are sporadic, and button clicks will take effect without me
clicking any buttons.  Any ideas on how I can fix this?

Thanks,

Sean

It may be caused by bad mouse emulation.
What brand and model you have ?  I'll like to know.  As a KVM specialist
, I may know if the maker offer some firmware upgrade.

1. Keyboard, Video, Mouse (KVM) Switchbox problems

Has anyone had any success finding a KVM switch that works between Win98 and
RedHat 6.0 machines?  (ps/2 mouse and keyboard)  I have tried 2 manual
switches.  Took them both back because they would lose the keyboard or mouse
after a few switches.   Just bought a Belkin OmniCube 2-port electronic
switch.  It seems pretty nice and works fine with the Win98 box but only the
keyboard works for the Linux box.  After startx, neither the keyboard or
mouse will work.  All I can do is telnet in and shutdown.

Has anybody else seen these problems, found solutions, or have any ideas?
