Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 107136
kudzu want to add generic PS/2 mouse after plugging in usb mouse
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:39:33 EDT
Description of problem:
On dell i8100 (and dell i8200) fedora core test 3 is installed using
only the touch pad. After plugging in a logitech usb wheel mouse some time
after install kudzu wants to add a Generic Mouse (PS/2) at each subsequent
reboot until told to ignore.
Both 'mice', the touch pad and the usb mouse, work OK
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Is it consistent - if you re-run kudzu after unplugging the USB mouse, the PS/2
mouse appears to go away?
Is this what you intended:
1. boot laptop
2. unplug usb mouse
3. reboot laptop
I have done this 3 times and the kudzu message did not reappear.
I also did the following 3 times:
1) boot laptop
2) unplug usb mouse
3) reboot laptop
4) plug in usb mouse
5) reboot laptop
Again the Generic Mouse(PS/2) message did not reappear.
I also ran kudzu -p a couple of times in a console, again nothing.
After I had seen this kudzu message a couple of times (before bugzillaing it)
I told kudzu to 'ignore' it. Does this 'ignore' leave a persistent 'checkmark'
PS /etc/sysconfig/hwconf has an entry:
'usbprod: USB-PS/2 Optical Mouse'.
Yes, 'ignore' leaves a permanent 'don't worry about this device' entry.
What does your /etc/sysconfig/hwconf look like?
It is very possible this kudzu message is NOT related to the usb mouse.
Yesterday I installed test3 on a dell inspiron 8200 without the usb mouse
plugged in. (the i8200 has an Alps GlidePoint/Stickpointer/Touchpad).
After install the stickpointer/touchpad worked perfectly and 'XF86Config' and
'hwconf' had the correct entries.
Without plugging in the usb mouse I rebooted the laptop.
Kudzu promptly came up with the same message that it wants to add a
Generic PS/2 mouse.
I have neither configured the mouse from the kudzu prompt nor 'ignored' it.
I have also not plugged in the usb mouse yet.
If you want me to test anything just ask.
This should be fixed when kudzu-1.1.35-1 is used in an install
