Description jeremy boyd 2009-11-02 16:11:36 EST
Description of problem: optical mouse does not function after the kernel begins to boot. also, booting fedora 12 beta live media from a usb stick does not work. i found this https://lists.linux-foundation.org/pipermail/bugme-new/2006-May/014325.html and tried adding mem=2g to my boot options and now the mouse works. i have attached a portion of dmesg that looks suspect but can provide you with any more logs or output that you require.

dmesg:

Please post the entire dmesg. And try adding "intel_iommu=off" to the boot options next time, instead of "mem=2g".
Comment 2 Chuck Ebbert 2009-11-04 15:21:00 EST
Also try "iommu=soft"
Comment 3 Mariusz Smykuła 2009-11-06 11:57:02 EST
I have this problem too, adding intel_iommu=off fix this for me. This bug is related (identical) with this bugs:
Bug 522668 - No USB mouse function
Bug 530455 - Intel 82801I (ICH9 Family) USB and USB2 controller does not function

thanks for this advice :D Is possible to fix this in kernel? Should I use iommu=soft instead?
