FC 2 machine and a KVM switch

Recommended Posts

Guest david

Hi all,

Hope you can help. I have two PC's attached to a KVM switch. One which is an oldish dell runs Fedora core 2 and whenever I switch back to it using the KVM it looses sync with the mouse. It used to do this with Red Hat 9 as well but quiting GNOME with Ctrl+Alt+F6 and then reloading with Ctrl+Alt+F7 always brought things back into line. I am afraid to say it but I know this is a software issue since it didn't do it under its old OS of M$ Windows...

Does anybody know how to get the mouse to resync ???

At the moment I often VNC into it but that can sometime be a pain in the rear for a variety of reasons.

Thanks in advance,

David.

Tried the ctrl_alt_f1 and then ctrl_alt_f7 and that failed I'm afraid.

I will try the grub modification but I must admit I don't understand why editing grub, which controls the boot order, will have an effect on mouse sync that is lost when using a KVM switch...

Did a bit more googling and found this....

"Press Ctrl+Alt+F2, then press Enter.

At the command prompt, type:

 

/sbin/modprobe mousedev

echo "/sbin/modprobe mousedev" >> /etc/init.d/boot.local

Press Alt+F7."

does this sound like a solution to the people around here ???

Once again thanks for any and all help recieved.

David.
