Re: scroll mouse quits working

Every once in a while, when I use my KVM switch, the middle mouse

Short of rebooting, not really an option, what else can I do to get
the scroll wheel to function properly again?
Anything in /etc/init.d/ that I can rerun?
PS/2 or USB?
If USB, you can try unplugging/replugging the mouse.
Are you running GPM; if so, you can try "/etc/init.d/gpm restart".
You might try unloading/reloading any mouse/USB-related modules.
Do you actually have to reboot, or will a restart of X fix it? Or have
you tried starting a second session of X to see if it works there? Or in
the console (assuming you have GPM installed)?
