So I was playing more with wsmux on the Mac, and I noticed:
* I can actually open the non-muxed keyboard now. (This didn't work
* If I configure a `kbdmux' for wsdisplay0, I can actually use the
muxed keyboard on the console *and* in X. (This didn't work
* Without the kbdmux attribute, hot-swapping keyboards on the console
works. (This didn't work before.)
* With the kbdmux attribute, hot-swapping keyboards on the console
works, and adding a second keyboard also works. (Neither of these
* Hot-swapping mice in X works, and adding a second mouse also works.
(I think this particular part worked before, but since wsmux broke
the keyboard before, it wasn't terribly helpful.)
* Hot-swapping keyboards in X does *not* work, with or without wsmux;
the keyboard appears unresponsive, although the hardware Caps Lock
light still toggles. Same thing when I add a second keyboard while
using wsmux (but the first one continues working).
I made the following changes to my config file:
< wsdisplay0 at ofb? console ?
< #wskbd0 at akbd? console ?
< #wsmouse0 at ams?
> wsdisplay0 at ofb? console ? kbdmux 1
> #wskbd0 at akbd? console ? mux 1
> #wsmouse0 at ams? mux 0
< wsmouse* at ums?
> wsmouse* at ums? mux 0
< wskbd* at ukbd? console ?
> wskbd* at ukbd? console ? mux 1
> pseudo-device wsmux 2
Shar and enjoy.
