Description Michael Schwendt 2003-08-19 09:27:58 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030225

Description of problem:
During installation I choose Generic Serial Mouse (3 buttons) as always for my
Logitech Mouse.

During firstboot, progress bar stops around 30% (Starting system services).
After I kill the X server, I see a corrupted (wrong font) kudzu text dialog on
ALT+F8, reading:

  The following mouse has been removed from your system

  Generic Serial Mouse

  You can choose to...

And a few buttons at the bottom of the screen. When I quit that dialog, the
booting continues.

How reproducible:
Three tries, three times.

According to my stop-watch, in graphical boot, "Probing for new hardware" takes
approx. 48 seconds to complete after I had configured my mouse in run-level 3
with mouseconfig. (30 seconds of that most likely being those mentioned in bug
100925) Whatever it has problems with in the background, after that my mouse
still works.
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2003-10-21 16:32:29 EDT
Should be fixed in current code.
Comment 3 Michael Schwendt 2003-10-21 18:15:38 EDT
If "current code" means kudzu-1.1.34-1, I can't confirm that.

In rhgb, when I "Show details", I am greeted by kudzu (and a 30 secs countdown)
and it wants to remove my generic serial mouse. Additionally, the mouse pointer
jumps around the screen during hardware detection.
Comment 4 Michael Schwendt 2003-10-25 14:38:05 EDT
kudzu-1.1.35-1 fixes it, however it switches back from rhgb "Show details" mode
to graphical progress bar when it's done. That's a different bug though.
