Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 12068
flaky detection of serial mouse
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:14:10 EDT
After installation, on first boot up, kudzu told me that my Genius Netmouse
Pro, a serial mouse, had been removed. (It was mistaken.)
Now that I think about it, the installer didn't detect the serial mouse either
(see bug 12056). It did in 6.2 though.
Fun. Does it ever detect it from the command line?
Are there any lock files in /var/lock?
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- on next boot, kudzu says that the generic serial mouse has been replaced by a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.
