Dear Magnus Hagebris and List,
I also use two banks of Belkin Omni View SE4-port KVM switches. My first bank
is quite stable
and has no problem with losing mouse control. However, the second bank (one
SuSE Box running
6.4/7.1/7.2/7.3/8.0 and one Win98 box) is quite unpredictable. Some days it
works fine and other days
looses mouse control after only a few minutes. Both boxes on the second bank
lose mouse control,
though not always at the same time, so OS does not seem to be the primary
issue. When the second
bank boxes lose mouse control, I sometimes run a separate mouse directly to one
of the boxes until
the system settles down. Such is life in the Belkin world I guess. :--)

I have the same problem with SuSE 7.1. Intermittant, but some days are worse
The funny thing is that my RH 6.2 machine never has these problems. It just
keep on going and that is freaking me out....
I have the Belkin Omni View SE 4-port(using 2 banks).
And that kvm seem to work without the power supply. But I lost the mouse more
often like that.
Speaking of the devil, I just lost my mouse typing these few lines...
Loosing the mouse without switching channel/bank are quite annoying.
Especially when the X-server once and a while restarts while doing the tty1 ->

I am using a multiple servers with a KVM switch
and I find that I lose
control of my mouse as I return back to the SUSE 8.0 KDE. Are any you
experiencing the same thing. I have tried other mice and different KVM
-I am using a Belkin KVM switch with hot key functionality for changing
-I am using PS/2 mice
The only way I can stablize the mouse is if I return to YAST 2 and try to
re-configure the mouse when it is a problem... Otherwise I have been
rebooting to get the mouse stability.
This seems to be an *intermittant* problem for me, too. I usually just >

Switching to and from Win98 is *usually* not a problem. I am not using a >
Belkin, just a cheesemaster generic KVM switch. Sorry I'm not more help.
