KVM Switch

I have a 4 port KVM switch it is brand new

the mouse does not communicate with my linux box.

I have tried the USB dongle for a USB mouse and a regular old PS/2 mouse and it doesnt work.

is there any known issues with switch boxes and linux? thanks Mike

Crap! I just browsed the forums and this is a common problem with no solutions...

my KVM switch goes haywire when I switch from a windows box to fedora - the mouse goes crazy. Unplugging the mouse and plugging it back in does the trick. It works alright when I use Knoppix Live though.
