Mouse not working


I am using a KVM switch so I can operated 2 machines with one monitor
, one keyboard, and one mouse. When I toggle
the switch to operate the XP machine and switch back to my Mandrake
9.2 machine the mouse cursor freezes and is un-operable. The only way
I can un-freeze the mouse is to log out then log back in again. Does
anyone know how this can be fixed?

I can reproduce the same mouse cursor freezing behavior by connecting the PS2 mouse
directly to the Mandrake 9.2 machine, then disconnecting and reconnecting the mouse.




Thanks

It sounds like you are running into a hardware (motherboard/driver) issue.
Has the Linux box ever had a different OS on it? If it has did you have the same problem?

You may be able to resolve the problem with a different KVM switch.
If both computers support it the USB ones may be your best bet.

The problem was the KVM switch.
