Hello there!


CPU: AMD Athlon XP 2000+
Motherboard: ASUS A7V8X-X
Video: GeForce2 MX 64 MB
NIC: 3Com 3c509 Ethernet Card
NIC: Realtek 10/100 Mbps Ethernet PHY
Hard Drive: 80 GB 7200 RPM ATA-100
Case: Lian-Li PC-5

I installed Fedora Core 1 and it was able to detect my NIC card on eth0!

My problem:

I have hooked up the Linux box to my monitor, keyboard, & mouse using a KVM... When I login to Windows XP and then switch to Linux, I am able to move my mouse for a couple of seconds and then the operating system freezes and I am forced to reboot... How can I prevent this from happening?

In addition, I use a router to connect to the a cable modem... Because of this a NAT address is assigned to my card... How do I find the IP address for this machine?

With thanks,

find the IP address with the command (in a terminal):

I had a kvm switch problem on a 2.6 kernel and what fixed it for me was changing the mouse type in /etc/X11/XF86Config to:

Option "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2"

and disabling gpm (the console mouse) with:

chkconfig --del gpm

Thanks for the response... I really appreciate it.

Do you believe that my mouse is the problem using the KVM? If I turn Linux on and switch back and forth from WinXP to Linux, everything works (including the mouse). But, if I leave Linux running, I can't perhaps move the mouse (for a few seconds) but then everything freezes including the keyboard. Is there a hot-key that launches the terminal?

In addition, my mouse is a USB.

With thanks,
