Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 61691
gpm locks console
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:41:06 EDT
gpm 1.20.0-1 locks the keyboard. Down grade to gpm-1.19.3-20.i386.rpm from
7.2 fixes the problem.
Works for me.
What type of keyboard and mouse are you using?
They are a Logitech MouseMan and eMachines keyboard behind a Linksys 4-port KVM
switch. The new gpm may have sent some bits which disables KVM.

I can't comfirm this bug, but the identical version of gpm is completely shot
with my logitech optical wheel mice (I have two, on different systems). If there
is a developer at Centennial who needs to borrow one to fix this, come see me.
We've reverted to the 7.2 version because of this and other similar (as in, not
reproducable here) bugs.
