Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 109294
Mouse stops working when booting (with rhgb)
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:33 EST
Description of problem:
When the graphical boot start, the mouse works OK.
After a few seconds (after "Loading local disks" or something like
that), the mouse stop working.
When X starts, the mouse still doesn't work.
My mouse is a Microsoft Intellimouse connected via USB.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I don't know if the problem comes from redhat-config-mouse, XFree or
At each boot.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora Core 1, select Generic 3 button USB Mouse.
2. Boot the new system.
The mouse doesn't work (can't move it, can't click) a few seconds
after the graphical boot appears.
The mouse continues to work as it should !
I've done some additional tests, and I've found that the problem only
occurs using rhgb. If if remove "rhgb" from the grub menu, the mouse
works perfectly when the X server starts.
However, when I use rhgb, it stops working after "Setting up local
disks" and I can't make it work exept by rebooting.
So I guess the problem is more with rhgb than redhat-config-mouse or
something else ?
Also, note that I didn't have this problem with test3.
Created attachment 95828 [details]
Changing component to rhgb.
This problem seems to be fixed in FC2 test 3.
I assume it was a problem with the USB code, trashing your
mouse for some reason when starting support for USB drives.
I have an USB mouse too on a test box and can't reproduce the
problem either at this point.
