i just got a belkin omniview usb kvm switch. its okay. there was a sticky issue with the mouse, but seems okay. when i'm in a windows machine, or my gentoo box on an amd64, all is fine.

when i switch to my g4 ppc, there is an issue. i'm guessing its a power issue of some sort? i'm using a dell keyboard, and the caps lock light blinks. on for 2 seconds or so, off for 2 seconds. repeats.

when the light is on, i can type. when its not, nothing. seems the power is alternating on and off to the keyboard.

any particular thoughts here? only happening on my g4.

Check dmesg, is the device connecting and reconnecting repeatedly? Perhaps it's a power issue, can you try with a powered hub?

it is a powered usb kvm by belkin.

not sure what changed. i should have checked dmesg at the time. didn't think to.

i didn't connect to the machine for a day, and now it just works.

so far so good. waiting to see if it'll happen again.
