I know this question has been asked before. I have spent hours searching google and found no solution that works. Why is this? The problem I have is this: When switching from back to my Fedora Core IV box, the mouse suddenly starts to act all jumpy, doing random clicks and being generally useless, until I restart the computer. The exact error messages showing up in /var/log/messages is:
psmouse.c: Wheel Mouse at isa0060/serio1/input0 lost synchronization, throwing 1 bytes away.
I have tried unplugging and replugging the mouse in the machine, no good.
I have tried restarting X, no good.
I have tired restarting GPM, no good.
I have tried adding "Protocol" "IMPS/2"" to the xorg.conf file, no good.
This is a production server which I cannot restart just to get the mouse going all the time.
I need the KVM. Removing it is not a viable option.
Research on google shows this problem is more than just a Fedora issue and is very common. Why has no one in the programming world found a fix yet?
(For what its worth, I have a Belkin OmniView Pro 4 port KVM, F1D104. I am using a Compaq 2 button, 1 wheel (M/N M-s48a) PS/2 Mouse. I have no problem when switching to MSWindows, ever).
If their is a workable solution, could someone please help me find it. I would very much appreciate it.
