12 I have a 'Freedom' KVM switch, which was adequate for settings things up
13 when I was installing Gentoo in a newly-built box
14 & using the previous machine for other things at the same time.
15 However, one of the graphics connections doesn't work properly
16 & today I simply use the switch as an extension of my keyboard cord.
17 As with any hardware problem, the first thing is to swap things around:
18 try plugging the machines into the opposite outlets & see what happens.
19 You may find that one of the switch's channels is defective.
