I was using a kvm

I just read in the i386 distro FAQ that openbsd is sensitive to kvm switches adn I had it on a kvm at work....heh, keyboard ok but mouse funny just as it says....time to get a seperate mouse I guess......looks liek alla systems go exect for that (although fdisk is much more familiar to me than the openbsd way of disk partitioning)

Re: I was using a kvm

The only issue I've ever run into with my KVM across openbsd, linux, and windows systems is that the mouse ports are ps/2 and the KVM only supports a 2 button mouse. The end result is the scroll wheel only goes down :P (note all the systems except one are i386 and the one is sparc64)

For that matter try unplugging/plugging a ps/2 mouse into systems in windows/X and get really to watch the hilarity. I would suspect a lot of these issues would go away with a KVM/computers that only used usb mice.
