Description Scott Baker 2003-11-06 18:06:41 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.5)
Gecko/20031007 Firebird/0.7

Description of problem:
The "emulate three buttons" mouse option doesn't work as desired with
Kernel 2.6.0

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-2.6.0-test8 and kernel-2.6.0-test8

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install aranj's 2.6.0 kernel RPM
2. Reboot into kernel 2.6.0
3. StartX
4. Select some text
5. Try pasting the text with both left and right mouse buttons at the
same time
    

Actual Results:  It pastes the text and ALSO brings up the context
menu for the right mouse button.

Expected Results:  Just paste the text.  

Additional info:

The exact same configuration, if rebooted in to 2.4.22 works as
desired.  The kernel rpm exhibits the same behavior under RH 9 and on
two different machines.

This was a suggestion from the mailing list, however it doesn't appear
to fix the problem

Try to pass 'psmouse_noext=1' as a boot parameter.

And many others.  A mouse driver is not really in a good shape right
now in 2.6 kernels.
