Description Brent R Brian 1999-04-29 13:36:53 UTC
I am using (1) Monitor (1) Keyboard (1) Mouse and a CHEAP
switch box to switch between two systems, one is Linix
RedHat 5.0.

If I switch from/to the Linux box while at a text console
the mouse functions normally.

If I switch from/to the Linux box while at an X console the
mouse moves, but does not function on button pushes, etc.

I can go to virtual console #1 and ^c the X session and
restart, another work around is to hot-key to a text console
before throwing the switch.

I would live with this quietly, but the other device on the
switch is WIN95, and it works fine.
