Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 103452
kvm switch causes mouse pointer movement to press left button
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:57:17 EDT
Description of problem:
I have three x86 servers on a KVM switch. This installation has been in place
for a year, working fine. The RH6.2 machine, and the windows machine, are fine.
RedHat 9 desktop on a Proteva P3 loses normal mouse pointer behaviour after
switching out then back again. I installed RH9 on a Dell P3 machine, same
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Components bundled in the RH9 CD
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Graphical login to Gnome
2. Switch to another computer.
3. Switch back again. Mouse will appear to go crazy.
Unuseable operation of mouse when switching back.
Smooth operation of Gnome screen when switching back.
You can "fix" it by logging out using keyboard commands (you can usually coerce
the RedHat icon to be selected, then use enter key and arrows to log out) then
logging back in again. Everything goes back to normal. Logging out, KVM
switching out then back, does not count. You have to log out after switching
This is on a lower level than GNOME. I doubt we're going to be able
to fix it without having your exact model of KVM, unfortunately.
In any case you probably want to let us know the exact KVM model.
Thanks for the report.
