KBDMUX(4)	       FreeBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual		     KBDMUX(4)

NAME
     kbdmux -- keyboard	multiplexer

SYNOPSIS
     device kbdmux

     In	/boot/device.hints:
     hint.kbdmux.0.disabled="1"

DESCRIPTION
     The kbdmux	keyboard driver	provides support for basic keyboard multiplex-
     ing.  It is built around the idea of a ``super keyboard''.	 The kbdmux
     driver acts as a master keyboard consuming	input from all slave keyboards
     attached to it.

     Slave keyboards can be attached to	or detached from the kbdmux keyboard
     driver with the kbdcontrol(1) utility.

SEE ALSO
     kbdcontrol(1), atkbd(4), syscons(4), ukbd(4)

HISTORY
     The kbdmux	module was implemented in FreeBSD 6.0.

AUTHORS
     Maksim Yevmenkin <m_evmenkin@yahoo.com>

CAVEATS
     The kbdmux	keyboard driver	switches all slave keyboards into K_RAW	mode.
     Thus all slave keyboards attached to the kbdmux keyboard share the	same
     state.  The kbdmux	keyboard is logically equivalent to one	keyboard with
     lots of duplicated	keys.
