Description Tim Waugh 2000-06-10 17:30:55 UTC
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.

Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2000-06-20 21:37:46 UTC
(I still get this in beta2.)

Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2000-07-27 18:24:31 UTC
Is this present in beta 5?

Comment 4 Tim Waugh 2000-07-28 07:45:11 UTC
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.

Comment 5 Tim Waugh 2000-07-28 08:06:30 UTC
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.
