I'm still doomed to old distros (kernel 2.4)
The 2.6 kernel input driver is unable to handle PS/2 (thats a violet coded connector) keyboard unplugs. I need to share a single set of keyboard/monitor/mouse between several PCs, using a switcher. Result is unusable loss of keyboard.
It seems I am the only one in the world able to demonstrate this effect, no matter what distro, no matter what motherboard, using many keyboards old and new. Use a 2.4 kernel, and all is well.
A kind kernel developer has tried to help, but I fear this one is a bit fundamental.
maybe.. one day :(
