This enhancement is new in the Solaris Express 6/05 release and in the Solaris 10 1/06 release.
This feature enables the Solaris OS to support multiple keyboards and mouse devices simultaneously. The virtualkm feature also provides an auto-switch function that enables users to obtain separate input for keyboards and for mouse devices. All these enhancements are compatible with existing applications.
This feature is particularly useful for the following users:
Users of systems with KVMS support
Laptop users who connect an extra mouse
Users with special keypads or other devices that are declared as keyboards or mouse devices
For more information, see virtualkm(7D).
