KVM problem w/ 2.6 kernel
I'm using a KVM swith to go between my pc and linux box and everything worked fine with the 2.2 kernel. But when I updated to the 2.6.8 kernel I can't get the mouse or keyboard to work. The KVM uses one USB plug for both the mouse and keyboard so they are plugged into one usb slot.
The only way I've got my keyboard to work is to plug an extra keyboard into the ps/2 slot. When I do I get this message
input: AT Translated Set 2 keyboard at isa 0060/serio0
and my keyboard thats plugged into my KVM starts working. I can then unplug the other keyboard and it still works. Is there a way to get my computer to see my KVM keyboard w/o plugging one into my ps/2 slot, and if so what modules I should have loaded?

Sorry for posting the same quetion in two forums I'm new to linux and didn't see this one untill after I posting in the debian help one. I will try these out and post an update shortly.. thanks...
I found out that my troubles in 2.4 were coming from the usbmouse and usbkbd modules. With these removed and the ones you listed installed it works flawlessly. I couldn't get it to work on 2.6 but 2.4 is fine for now.
Thanks for your help.
