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 multiplexing.  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)

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.

HISTORY

     The kbdmux module was implemented in FreeBSD 6.0.
