Description of problem:
I use Logitech IFeel USB mouse, but anaconda detects it as "Generic -
Wheel Mouse (PS/2). Strange enough in the end the mouse works on the
console and in X11.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use a USB mouse and see what anaconda detects.
I'm going to piggy pack my bug report on this one. I have a D845
Intel mobo with a logitech optical wheel mouse, USB.
I just upgraded to Fedora Core 2 test1 from FC1 using the CDROM .iso's.
FC2T1 reported that my mouse was PS/2 wheel mouse during installation.
So I selected USB wheel mouse instead. The installation completed,
and the mouse was functional.
HOWEVER. Then I rebooted. The mouse hasn't worked since.
It seems to me that mouse issues were things we had to deal with 5
years or more ago. Not something I expected to be screwed up in 2004!
Rick - add 'alias usb-controller uhci-hcd' to /etc/modprobe.conf.
The 'universal presence of a PS/2 mouse' is fixed in current kudzu.
