Description Gene Czarcinski 2004-02-18 08:24:55 EST
Description of problem:

With the 2.6 kernel, the pointing device (mouse, trackball, etc.)
needs to change from using /dev/psaux to /dev/input/mice.

Update system-config-mouse to do the necessary updating.
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2004-02-18 12:22:22 EST
system-config-mouse isn't run automatically, so I'm pretty sure that's
not the right place for it.
Comment 2 Gene Czarcinski 2004-02-18 12:36:39 EST
When I first booted up the new kernel that did not have psaux,
"something" invoked mouse configuration.  Whether this was
system-config-mouse or something else, I do not know.

The "hard part" is that apparently system-config-xfree86 put
/dev/psaux into /etc/X11/XF86Config.  If this had been "/dev/mouse",
then it would be a simple matter of changing the symbolic link for
->psaux to ->input/mice

Fixing things up so they work in a future test and final distribution
for an upgrade is not going to be easy.
Comment 3 Gene Czarcinski 2004-02-18 13:25:29 EST
I just checked today's round of updates and it includes an updated
system-config-display.  This may fix the mouse reconfiguration that
was the objective of this bug report ... that does not mean that
changes are not necessary to system-config-mouse but that my specific
problem may have benn for another package is is already fixed.

Once I get the new round downloaded and installed, I will set stuff
package the way it originally was and try again to see if this will
handle things.
Comment 4 Gene Czarcinski 2004-02-18 14:31:24 EST
Nope.  Whatever system-config-display changed, it does not fix the
mouse problem.  When the error occurs, you are lead through a bunch of
panels which dows invoke mouseconfig.  However, that does not fix things.

Comment 7 Gene Czarcinski 2004-02-19 12:27:02 EST
You close 116180 (against system-config-display) as a dup of this
report (against system-config-mouse).  I am not sure that is the case.

This package should be changed to set mouse->input/mice instead of
mouse->psaux.  Even if that setting is made manually,
system-config-display still sets /dev/psaux.

system-config-display should be chaged to use /dev/mouse
Comment 8 Brent Fox 2004-02-19 12:43:44 EST
Both system-config-mouse and system-config-display use the list of
mice that comes from rhpl so they are dupes of each other.  Actually,
this bug should be filed against rhpl.  Changing components.

Comment 10 Brent Fox 2004-02-20 10:59:16 EST
Also, I'm taking this out of RFE status.  It's more of a critical bug
rather than an RFE.

I will try to fix this today.

Comment 16 Brent Fox 2004-02-24 15:59:08 EST
Should be fixed in Rawhide as of today.  This touches libxf86config,
rhpl, anaconda, and system-config-display.

Comment 26 Neal Becker 2004-03-18 09:22:21 EST
I'm confused.  Changing from /dev/psaux -> /dev/input/mouse didn't 
work.  Changing to /dev/input/mouse0 did work.  How is this thing 
supposed to be setup?  What is /dev/input/mouse?  What is /dev/input 
mouse0? 
 
Here are mine, are the correct? 
ls -l /dev/input/mouse 
crw-------  1 root root 10, 149 Feb 23 16:02 /dev/input/mouse 
[nbecker@rpppc1 ~]$ ls -l /dev/input/mouse0 
crw-------  1 root root 13, 32 Feb 23 16:02 /dev/input/mouse0 
 
Comment 27 Bill Nottingham 2004-03-18 10:41:18 EST
You want /dev/input/mice - it's the multiplexor for
/dev/input/mouse0,1,2...

There is no /dev/input/mouse.

Comment 33 Adam Huffman 2004-04-11 08:40:34 EDT
I have changed XF86Config to use /dev/input/mice and still X does not
see the mouse.  While it shows up in the log file, it doesn't do anything.
