intellimouse ps/2 not recognized during installation and after installation
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:40 EST
Description of problem:
Intellimouse (ps/2) is not recognized during installation and after
installation. It works fine using fedora 1
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 2 beta 1 and 2
start fedora installation and the intellimouse using ps/2 is not
Steps to Reproduce:
What kind of mouse does it show up as?
The mouse doesn't show up at all.
It also doesn't work for fedora core test3. I tested it 3 days ago.
The mouse doesn't show up during the start of the installation so
also the installation menu must be handled without the mouse
Correction at comment 3:
I think the installation detects a mouse but not that it is an
intellimouse. The systems 'thinks' it's a generic 3 button mouse.
Did you change the setting from generic 3 button mouse to
intellimouse? I have seen some other intellimice go bonkers if the
wrong mouse protocol is used. The problem is that only USB mice can
be accurately detected. Most PS/2 mice we have to make a guess at.
Try again but select "intellimouse" in the list and see if that
doesn't work. Please reopen this bug report if that doesn't fix the
