I have an USB-keyboard/-mouse connected to a switchbox which is itself
connected to a PowerMac (MacOS) and my PC running Linux. I do regularly
switch my USB-devices between Mac and PC. Since I upgraded to kernel
2.4.0 and now 2.4.2 it happens from time to time that Linux does not
recognize my keyboard/mouse after switching back to the PC. This leaves
me in a rather unconfortable situation, since I can't do anything
anymore. All I could do is switch off the power! I tried to
disconnect/reconnect my USB-keyboard but it didn't help.
1. Is there any better way to fix this situation, besides power off or
getting a standard keyboard?
2. Is there a minmal time frame of no activity (up to an hour) where any
cached data is saved to the disk, so I could switch off the power
without corrupting my disk?
3. How can I get more information what's happening? Is there any
USB-log/-trace accessable after the restart of linux? And whom/where do
I have to send it?
PS. Please do CC, I don't read linux-kernel.
