Description Tim Waugh 2000-06-10 13:30:55 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.
Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2000-06-20 17:37:46 EDT
(I still get this in beta2.)
Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2000-07-27 14:24:31 EDT
Is this present in beta 5?
Comment 4 Tim Waugh 2000-07-28 03:45:11 EDT
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 04:06:30 EDT
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.
