From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows NT)

Description of problem:
I have 2-button Microsoft Serial mouse that never gets automatically 
detected during RedHat install . I have to manually configure it 
as "Microsoft Compatible (Serial)" to make it work.

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run mouseconfig tool
	

Actual Results:  mouse not detected automatically

Expected Results:  to be able to see the mouse at COM port 1:(/dev/ttyS0)

Additional info:

I have used all RedHat releases from RedHat 5.2-RedHat 7.1. Problem exists 
in all versions. Interestingly Mandrake 7.x can detect my mouse 
automatically during install.

Very very odd, as the Mandrake serial probe:

http://www.linux-mandrake.com/cgi-bin/cvsweb.cgi/gi/tools/serial_probe/

is almost exactly the same code as what we use in kudzu for serial mouse
detection.  Are you sure it's not just the default in Mandrake?

Moving comp to kudzu, that's where the detection is.

Closing out bugs on older, no longer supported releases. Apologies for any lack
