Description Shelley Gong 2009-01-07 14:48:01 EST
Created attachment 328407 [details] The hal output Description of problem: With FC9 update where the kernel is 188.8.131.52-73.fc9.i686 and Xorg server is 1.5.2, the vmware vmmouse is detected automatically and loaded without installing vmware tools. Beside the vmmouse, another device seems to process the mouse event as well. So the mouse is not working reliably. If I disable the evdev by the following in xorg.conf and manually config vmmuose, it works fine. Section "ServerFlags" Option "AutoAddDevices" "false" EndSection Also it works fine with FC10 and ubuntu 8.10. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): evdev 2.0.8, vmmouse 12.6.2 How reproducible: 100% Steps to Reproduce: 1. Install FC9 in vmware 2. Update the system by yum 3. Restart hal and X server Actual results: The mouse is not working reliably and it seems both vmmouse and another driver (evdev) are processing the mouse event. Expected results: Just vmmouse driver processses the event. Additional info:

what happens if you set Option "AllowEmptyInput" "on" in the ServerLayout? Does it work then?

Yes, it works.
