Description Thomas Zehetbauer 2004-10-14 19:31:57 EDT
gpm-1.20.1-61 removes /etc/sysconfig/gpm but still tries to source it
from /etc/init.d/gpm line 44.
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2004-10-14 23:29:11 EDT
Fixed in -62.
Comment 2 Eido INOUE 2004-10-15 10:59:39 EDT
*** Bug 135806 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Comment 3 Michael Schwendt 2004-10-20 18:31:21 EDT
Cannot confirm that it would be fixed in -62. Every service gpm
restart adds another "/usr/sbin/inputattach -ms /dev/ttyS0 --daemon"
process, which slows down mouse movement and keyboard significantly
until I kill all but one.
Comment 4 Thomas Zehetbauer 2004-10-20 19:58:46 EDT
I can confirm this, each 'gpm restart' causes an additional
inputattach instance to be launched. I have now manually reverted to
directly use the mouse device (only MOUSETYPE and DEVICE in
/etc/sysconfig/mouse).
Comment 5 Michael Schwendt 2004-10-21 11:36:44 EDT
Then let's reopen this.
Comment 6 Bill Nottingham 2004-10-21 12:06:06 EDT
Changing summary, then.
Comment 7 Michael Schwendt 2004-10-21 12:24:49 EDT
It was only bug 135806 (marked duplicate above) which referred to
"inputattach hogs cpu after gpm restart". I didn't see the connection
between these two...
Comment 8 Eido INOUE 2004-10-21 14:53:56 EDT
gpm.init has been modified so that a) inputattach gets shutdown when
gpm is shutdown and b) multiple instances of inputattach should not
get spawned.
