Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 204063
Raritan KVM USB dongle needs to be added to the USB HID blacklist
Last modified: 2007-11-16 20:14:53 EST
Description of problem:
During Installation the host tries to enumerate the keyboard/mouse dongle for
the Raritan KVM.At this time timeouts have been observed. So if the system has
USB Floppy/CDROM and if the Raritan USB KVM Dongle is being enumerated first
then due to these timeouts the usb-storage driver will not be loaded.So the USB
storage devices will be inaccessible.
Adding the Raritan KVM USB dongle to the blacklist fixes this issue
