Description of problem:
When I tried to install FC2-test3 the installation immediately
stopped. The last message was 'loading usb_storage'.
Because of bad eperiences during installation of Windows XP
I removed my usb card reader (Apacer 7 to 1). After this the 
installation was successfull.

After re-installing the card-reader the mouse is not working
anymore. It's a Logitech optical wheel mouse which is connected
to the PS2 port.
The same setup worked fine with RH9.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot

Actual Results:  mouse is vivible but can not be moved

Retry with a new card-reader:
the new card reader is connected to an external USB port.
Booting without card reader and connecting the card reader
later on, fixes the problem.

Comment 2 Dave Jones 2004-11-29 10:01:18 UTC
fixed in latest kernel update?

Comment 3 e.mergl 2004-12-23 06:55:59 UTC
seems to be fixed with FC3  2.6.9-1.681_FC3.
