Description Jon Frederick 2004-02-04 14:16:48 EST
Description of problem:
Kernel will hard lock the system on access to the PS/2 mouse port. 
Install is possible with a serial mouse or in text mode.  

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora Core 1

How reproducible:
Always reproducible

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot installer with PS/2 mouse attached
2. Attempt to use graphical installer with the PS/2 mouse

Actual results:
System hard locks with a screen full of garbage

Expected results:
working mouse and no crash

Additional info:
The Proliant 1600 has a very odd motherboard config, where the south
bridge and IO chips are behind a PCI to PCI bridge.  It is an Intel
440BX chipset, with the video chip, scsi and lan on the main PCI bus,
then a Digital PCI to PCI bridge to the south bridge and PCI expansion

After checking /proc/pci it looks like my first hunch was wrong.  It's still a
strange PCI setup, but the southbridge does look like it's in the right place.

I had this problem and solved it by starting the installation with the
"nousb" command line option.

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
