Do not move the keyboard and mouse during a reboot or at the ok prompt on a SPARC system. You can move the keyboard and mouse to another hub at any time after a system reboot. After you plug in a keyboard and mouse, they are fully functional again.
The keys just to the left of the keypad might not function on some third-party USB keyboards.
SPARC – Keep the following issues in mind when using USB keyboards and mouse devices on SPARC systems:
The power key on a USB keyboard behaves differently than the power key on the Sun type 5 keyboard. On a USB keyboard, you can suspend or shut down the system by using the SUSPEND/SHUTDOWN key. However, you cannot use that key to power up the system.
Before the boot process finishes, the OpenBoot PROM (OBP) limits keyboard and mouse devices to the motherboard root hub ports only.
USB keyboard and mouse devices cannot be used simultaneously with Sun Type 3, 4, or 5 keyboards on legacy SPARC systems, such as the Ultra 80.
For information about multiple keyboard and mouse device support, see virtualkm(7D).
Support for more than 3 buttons is available on USB or PS/2 mouse devices.
Wheel mouse scrolling is available on a USB or PS/2 mouse device. This support means that rolling the wheel on a USB or a PS/2 mouse results in a scroll in the application or window under mouse focus. StarOffice, Firefox, and GNOME applications support wheel mouse scrolling. However, other applications might not support wheel mouse scrolling.
