USB KVM stops working at linux boot
I have a avocent switchview MM2 USB2.0 plugged to my wireless logitech mouse keyboard combo.
My mouse and my keyboard are working perfectly when they are plugged directly to my linux box.
When I plug my KVM in my linux box, I am able to surf in the BIOS settings and change them with my keyboard but once I boot linux, the keyboard stops responding. I tried this with Fedora 4, Fedora 5 and also knoppix and each has the same behavior.
I have a led on my KVM that indicates when the computer stops responding to a USB signal. When I look at which stage the led is flashing:
FC5-> starting udev
Knoppix-> init stage
Also, If it could be of any interest for you, I have this output in my /var/log/messages when I plug/unplug the kvm (with the mouse linked to it) and when I plug/unplug the mouse/keyboard only without the kvm.
1)plug kvm (with mouse/keyboard plugged to the KVM)

Could it be related to the kernel? Do I need to set special features in the kernel then??
If you could help me to solve my problem, I will greatly appreciate!
