Description of problem:
(Fedora Core 2 test 1)

Kernel RPM downloaded via up2date.

Kernel seems to boot fine, but reports a "loading module: mousedev -
Error: Module not found".

Trying to hunt down the mousedev.ko I found it nowhere in the

Using a PS/2 mouse results in X not starting and complainig about
/dev/psaux not found (seeing in XF86Config, there is always the
/dev/input/mice used, I don't know the internal workings of XFree, but
that seems strange).

Using a USB mouse results in X starting and then I am able to run some
simple Display Managers fine, but KDE hangs the whole system on
"initialising devices".

Note: Kernel 2.6.1.XXX of Fedora Core 2 test1 is working like a
breeze, but 2.6.3 has SOME security patches I want to apply....

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora Core 2 test1 on an Athlon, KT400 based computer (a
DFI AD77 infinity board is mine)
2. use a PS/2 mouse
3. update to kernel 2.6.3-1.116 via up2date
4. reboot using the new kernel
5. have fun ;-)

Actual Results:  X does not start nor would start. PS/2 mouse not found.

Expected Results:  X should have presented a cool nice blue login screen.
