Sorry for not responding to this earlier. It was misfiled against 'mkkickstart' instead of 'redhat-config-kickstart'. I am unable to reproduce this behavior. To be honest, I don't see how starting the program could cause the mouse to freeze since redhat-config-kickstart does not try to probe the mouse. Try opening a terminal and running 'redhat-config-kickstart' from the command line. Does the mouse still lock up?
Comment 2 Mike DeMicco 2003-10-14 02:11:36 UTC
Yes it still occurs, but is not limited to kickstart -- any program that probes the USB.
Comment 3 Brent Fox 2003-10-14 04:12:06 UTC
Well, that's the funny thing...redhat-config-kickstart doesn't probe for the mouse at all.
Comment 4 Brent Fox 2003-10-14 23:05:54 UTC
notting: Have you seen any bugs similar to this regarding mouse probing in RHL 8.0?
Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2003-10-15 02:52:10 UTC
No, I don't recall anything like that.
Comment 6 Brent Fox 2003-10-15 22:55:23 UTC
Well, I don't know how else to proceed here other than to resolve as 'worksforme'. I'm fairly certain that the Microsoft IntelliMouse optical cordless works with Red Hat Linux on other machines. I don't know how to explain the behavior you are seeing because there is no mouse probing code in redhat-config-kickstart.
