Description of problem:
At random my desktop goes nuts, acting as if I randomly clicked on some menus, and this message is in /var/log/messages:
kernel: psmouse.c: Mouse at isa0060/serio1/input0 lost synchronization, throwing 2 bytes away.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Not sure what triggers this
do you have an USB mouse ? or a ps/2 one
I have this problem on test3 (kernel 2.6.5-1.327). For me it's triggered by putting the
machine into sleep mode; when it comes back up, mouse goes haywire in X and kernel
prints the 'lost synchronization' messages on the console.
Restarting X does not help, but unplugging the mouse and plugging it back in resolves it
(until I put the machine to sleep again). As a workaround I've moved the mouse from the
PS/2 to the USB port, which doesn't seem to exhibit the problem.
Mouse is a Logitech Optical Mouse M-BJ58; two buttons plus scroll wheel. I don't seem to
have the problem at random though, just when coming back from sleep.
I see the same problem with the 2.6.x kernel-smp.
I have an Epox EP-D3VA mobo with dual 1GHz PIIIs. USB is disable in
I see this problem with Core 1 and kernel-smp 2.6.5 or 2.6.6.
I also get the same problem when I boot from the Core 2 DVD.
I am running 2.6.5-1.358smp on i686, Supermicro X5DP8-G2 when running
in SMP error occurs - Mouse at isa00600/serio)/input0 lost synch,
throwing two bytes away.
any better with the 2.6.9 update ?
AFAICT, it's gone.
ok, reopen if it reoccurs.
