KVM Switch - LINDY

Hi,

Has anyone ever used a KVM Switch - LINDY CPU Switch Compact USB (http://www.lindy.com/uk/productfolder/03/32/32800/index.php) on Linux, particularly on Mandrake 10.1? Does it work, is it supported?


Thank you!

it's a hardware device, there is no software to load, so there should be no problem with ANY OS you wish to use.

The link I posted is wrong, the correct one is http://www.lindy.com/uk/productfolder/03/32/32798/index.php
My doubt resides on it representing two peripherals on one USB port, will it work on Linux?

SHouldn't be a problem. Keyboard and Mouse operations are actually on the same wire anyway.

And, from their own description

Works with all major USB enabled operating systems, and in any combination

On a side note, I installed a KVM last week on my system and my Xorg configuration detected incorrect settings for my LCD.  I had to tweak some settings to keep xorg from running my 1280x1024 lcd at 1400x????.  So, although it should work, there may still be a glitch or two.  YMMV since I don't use mandrake.
