Description of problem:
If I have an FC2 box on a belkin KVM, switching from to a different
port causes the mouse to behave erratically.
In FC1, bouncing to a console(CTRL-ALT-F1) and back to X(CTRL-ALT-F7)
resolved my mouse issues.
But, now I have to physically disconeect the PS2 mouse from the belkin
KVM and reonnect it to get the mouse to work correctly.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Connect an FC2 box to any Belkin KVM
2. Switch off of your FC2 box and Back again
3. Mouse behaves erratically until you disconnect/reconnect your PS2
Actual Results: The mouse will bounce all over the screen when moved.
Expected Results: Mouse behaves normally
I am using an MS Wheel Mouse with the Belkin. When I reonnect the
mouse to get it to work again, the wheel-up acts like a "right-click"
until I reboot, but this is minor compared to the behaviour when I
switch between ports
Duplicate of Bug #127431?
Yes, looks like bug #127431. Please try a more recent kernel, as some
of these synchronization bugs have been fixed lately.
