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!

These things are operating system independent and will work not matter what.

Even though it's USB and represents two peripherals on one USB port?

Perhaps you are thinking of a different model?  The one you referenced above has only PS/2 and video connections.  But most of the ones that have USB are transparent in that they just pass the USB signals and don't act as a USB device.

I also think there will be no incompatibility, do you agree?

Provided that the PC in question works with USB keyboard and mouse without the KVM, it should also work with it.
