do you have an USB mouse ? or a ps/2 one

Comment 2 Neal Becker 2004-03-03 12:25:55 UTC
ps2 mouse

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 
the BIOS.

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.

Comment 6 Dave Jones 2004-12-08 05:41:27 UTC
any better with the 2.6.9 update ?

Comment 7 Neal Becker 2004-12-08 12:25:52 UTC
AFAICT, it's gone. 

Comment 8 Dave Jones 2004-12-08 16:52:28 UTC
ok, reopen if it reoccurs.
