Description Peter Bieringer 2006-09-04 06:11:38 EDT
Description of problem:
On a Toshiba laptop running X and a PS/2 mouse after plug-in a serial console
connection to a Fortigate firewall, unwanted automagical load of sermouse
results in PS/2 mouse becomes unusable.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
udev-084-13-fc5.2

How reproducible:
Every time after serial console connection plug-in


Additional info:

I already tried "alias sermouse off" in /etc/modprobe.conf, but this won't help.

I'm not sure whether udev causes this problem, but if it's kernel related, pls.
change component.

install sermouse /bin/true
would help... to see, if udev is loading the module, execute:
/sbin/udevcontrol log_priority=debug
and look in /var/log/messages

Comment 3 Peter Bieringer 2006-09-25 10:37:45 EDT
After further investigation I found that I claim the wrong package for that
problem. Module "sermouse" was loaded by gpm-initscript. And this was caused by
the existance of an old /etc/sysconfig/mouse specifying a serial mouse...

Will close the bug, thank you for the hint, sorry for annoyance.
