Description Tim Waugh 2000-06-10 18:17:51 EDT
After installation, on first boot up, kudzu told me that my Genius Netmouse
Pro, a serial mouse, had been removed. (It was mistaken.)
Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2000-06-10 18:30:00 EDT
Now that I think about it, the installer didn't detect the serial mouse either
(see bug 12056).  It did in 6.2 though.
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2000-07-06 16:45:54 EDT
Fun. Does it ever detect it from the command line?
Are there any lock files in /var/lock?
Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2000-07-11 17:33:52 EDT
The behaviour that I'm seeing in beta 3 is:

- the installer doesn't detect the serial mouse (3 button PS/2 is selected, and
there isn't even a PS/2 port)
- on next boot, kudzu says that the generic serial mouse has been replaced by a
KYE|0003 Netmouse (my Genius mouse).  I.e. it says that the generic serial mouse
is gone, and the Genius mouse is there in its place.

So kudzu _can_ detect the mouse, but the installer can't.

Actually, this seems to be dependent on the mouse's mood at the time.  Sometimes
it will return a PNP string, and sometimes it won't.
