Description hjl 2002-03-22 18:08:48 EST
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? 
Comment 2 hjl 2002-03-24 13:38:15 EST
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.
Comment 5 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2002-04-09 13:46:24 EDT
We've reverted to the 7.2 version because of this and other similar (as in, not 
reproducable here) bugs.
