Description Tim Waugh 2012-06-07 05:42:14 EDT
Description of problem:
Moving the mouse does not always cause the pointer to start moving straight away. Sometimes there is a second or two where it stays put. This eventually gets more frequent until finally the pointer stops responding to mouse movements altogether.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Additional info:
Works fine with booting back into kernel-3.3.7-1.fc17.x86_64.

Patch to prevent automatic update to kernels resulting i problems:
diff -c yum.conf.std yum.conf
*** yum.conf.std	2012-06-07 11:50:49.000000000 -0400
--- yum.conf	2012-06-17 11:28:05.307139119 -0400

  #  This is the default, if you make this bigger yum won't see if the metadata
  # is newer on the remote and so you'll "gain" the bandwidth of not having to
  # download the new metadata and "pay" for it by yum not having correct

Oops. Above patch is reversed. In a normal forward patch file, the file names would have been yum.conf and yum.conf.<modified> .
Comment 6 Tim Waugh 2012-06-18 05:58:04 EDT
I no longer see this problem when using kernel-3.4.2-4.fc17.x86_64.
Comment 7 Josh Boyer 2012-06-18 08:04:05 EDT
Peter, there's nothing in your dmesg attachments that looks odd.  Did you upload them to the right bug?

Also, have you updated udev to udev-182-3.fc17 ?
Comment 8 Peter H. Jones 2012-09-12 08:00:06 EDT
I will have acces to the machine where this problem occurs in a couple of weeks. Meahwhile, I've found plugging the mouse into the USB port on the front makes the problem occur less frequently.
