Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 127431
Mouse becomes erratic using KVM to change computers
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:45 EST
Description of problem:
When using KVM (2 Belkin OmniPro 4-Ports Cabled). When switching to
desktop from another computer the mouse (MS Intellimouse Explorer)
movement is erratic bears no resemblance to mouse movement
get left and right mouse clicks without touching buttons
when I log out and then switch computers mouse is stable on return.
This happens on the 2 machines I am running RHFC on. (600 Mhz Dell,
2.8 Mhz Clone)
Sometimes see this on switch from GUI to Terminal to Gui.
If you need anything else please let me know.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Red Hat Fedora Core 2 Download Gnome desktop
Happens every time
Steps to Reproduce:
2.switch to another computer
3.switch back. Bingo erratic
erratic mouse not erotic (spelling and an evil mind)
Have done reinstalls and changed mouse types but it still continues.
Have also downloaded all fixes, but no change
I've got this too, in spades, on a two way belkin KVM switch. I wonder
if the process of reading mouse packets gets out of phase with the
mouse. There ought to be a timeout on mouse packet completion.
This is not an X issue because X uses the kernel driver now. Dupe of
bug 111161? See also: http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2082

This is most likely a problem with the kernel input layer. Some of
the synchronization problems were fixed recently, could you guys try
out the latest fc2 kernel update and see if that fixes the problem?
Am presently using kernel 2.6.8-1.521smp and still have the same
Have also tried the 2.6.8-1.521 problem is still there.
Is there a newer version
for the solution.
