    KVM problem w/ 2.6 kernel


    I was wondering if someone could help me with this.

    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?

    Keyboard requires the following modules

    keybdev

    Mouse requires the Following Modules

    You may need to make a few alterations in your X configuration as well..

    It works!!

    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.
