I use a 2 port KVM with USB connectors just fine at my desk with a Windows and QNX machine.
A usb -v command executes properly and shows the keyboard and mouse hid devices.
Now, we bought a dual display 8 port KVM with USB connectors for our system we ship to customers.
On this particular KVM, a usb -v command fails saying ‘device 1 I/O input errors’. Running sloginfo says that attaching mouse descriptor reports failed.
Interestingly enough, the KVM actually works in photon and I have full mouse control. The keyboard works too. So I’d ordinarily be very happy except that the repeat key feature is somehow disabled. No matter how long I hold a key down on the keyboard, I can’t get a key repeat.
This isn’t a HUGE deal since customers would only ever look at the QNX part of the system in the case of a some kind of failure but it irks me to not have that feature in my lab when I am debugging.
Is there any way to manually start the hid drivers with bad usb information if I know there is a keyboard and mouse present so I can get the repeat key working?
