Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 12056
serial mouse reported as PS/2
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:56 EDT
Using 'linux expert' to boot GUI installer, '3 button mouse (PS/2)' is
highlighted although my serial Genius Netmouse Pro 3 button mouse is
detected and working. When I select '3 button mouse (serial)' I have to
tell it which serial port it's on, even though it obviously already knows.
(This worked in 6.2, with the same hardware.)
Assigned to developer.
(I still get this in beta2.)
Is this present in beta 5?
Yes. While loading anaconda it says it detected a generic serial mouse, but
when it comes to choosing a mouse in the GUI, PS/2 is highlighted.
Sorry, that was with beta _4_.
With beta 5 I am asked which serial port my mouse is on. I can't get the
installer to start in GUI mode on this machine though, so I can't really test
the same thing.
If you are still having problem please reopen this bug.
