Description of problem:
I installed kernel-2.6.1-1.61 and rebooted. There were no errors
during reboot. Upon starting up X the mouse failed to respond. Both
PS/2 and USB mice were tested. However, none worked when X was
started. Booting into kernel-2.4.22-1.2163 and then starting X did not
replicate this behaviour and produced normal mouse activity.
The only abnormal event was that kudzu continually decided that the
mouse had been removed from the system and needed to be reconfigured
when going from 2.4.22 to 2.6.1. Both Reconfiguring the mouse or
ignoring the message yielded an unusable mouse.
There do not appear to be any messages in the boot, kernel, and
messages logs indicating that the mouse has failed.
I have booted into previous RedHat/Fedora 2.6.1 kernels and did not
observe this behaviour.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.boot into kernel-2.6.1-1.61
3.fail to get a response from the mouse
Actual Results: The mouse cursor would not move on the screen.
Expected Results: The mouse should have worked normally.
This is notabug!!!!! An upgrade of some inexplicit dependency resolved
the problem. I sincerely appologize for the waste of time.
