setting constant hardware settings

Let me give a little background on the problem. I am trying to hook up a unix box through a KVM to a display. The KVM is connected to a windows box as well. When I run the mouse and monitor directly to the unix box it works pretty well. However when I trie to load it through the KVM the keyboard and mouse doesn't work, and the display is messed up.
The interesting thing is that if a boot directly conected and then switch to KVM it works fine. This leads me to believe that Unix is trying to auto configure at startup. This doesn't seem to work well with the KVM. Is there any way to make the settings that boot up on direct connect constant, so that the KVM doesn't through things off?

I wonder string constant exists permanently or temporary. For example, printf("hello, world"); the function printf access to it is through a pointer. Does it mean storage is allocated for the string constant to exist permanently in memory? :confused: (4 Replies)

NAME
glutDialsFunc - sets the dial & button box dials callback for the current window. SYNTAX
#include <GLUT/glut.h> void glutDialsFunc(void (*func)(int dial, int value)); ARGUMENTS
func The new dials callback function. DESCRIPTION
glutDialsFunc sets the dial & button box dials callback for the current window. The dial & button box dials callback for a window is called when the window has dial & button box input focus (normally, when the mouse is in the window) and the user generates dial & button box dial changes. The dial parameter will be the dial number (starting at one). The number of available dial & button box dials can be determined with glutDeviceGet(GLUT_NUM_DIALS). The value measures the absolute rotation in degrees. Dial values do not ``roll over'' with each com- plete rotation but continue to accumulate degrees (until the int dial value overflows). Registering a dial & button box dials callback when a dial & button box device is not available is ineffectual and not an error. In this case, no dial & button box dials callbacks will be generated. Passing NULL to glutDialsFunc disables the generation of dial & button box dials callbacks. When a new window is created, no dial & button box dials callback is initially registered. SEE ALSO
