Description of problem:
If no mouse is detected, the options displayed are 'ok' and 'use text mode'. Can
we get a 'retry detection' button there too?
Why? I've never seen a report where it fails once but works when you try again.
Consider this the first 8-)
Mouse cable was loose. Plugged it back in, and then had to pick it manually.
This option has been added but is currently disabled. We need to have usb mouse
support built into the kernel used for the installer boot images for it to work,
since we do not load modules when devices are hotplugged. This makes bad things
happen with usb mice when X can't find them.
Note that they're built in for the -BOOT kernel, but not for the main kernels.
So since we now use the i586 kernel (for acpi) on the CD to boot from, it would
need to change for all kernels across the board.
Do this when we have the 2.6 kernel and mousedev.o isn't an issue.
This is now irrelevant.
