Description Igor Mozetic 2004-06-05 16:46:34 UTC

Description of problem:
I have a ps/2 3-button mouse. Works fine under RH9.
Under Fedora 2, it is detected, but doesn't move,
neither in console, not under X. Tried all configuration
variants I found with Google, and both kernels - no effect.

However, if I change the default kernel config from
modprobe psmouse, then it works fine.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
2.6.5-1.358 2.6.6-1.422

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.boot into default kernel 2.6.5 or 2.6.6
2.try to move the mouse

I have the same problem. The mouse was detected but did not work
during install or afterwards. gpm loads without incident, but there is
no cursor. Likewise, X starts but the mouse cursor just sits in the
middle of the screen. Running system-config-mouse doesn't help.

Mouse is a 3-button ps/2 Logitech Mouseman.

Using the ps2 mouse kernel module instead of built-in functions as a
workaround, but it'd be nice to have a proper fix.

Same problem here, I have an older SGI PS/2 3-button mouse.  Worked
fine in RH 8.0, upgraded to FC2 and I get a pointer but can't move it
or click.  

Where do you set CONFIG_MOUSE_PS2?  Is that in one of the config files
or do you pass that to the kernel as a boot argument?  

Comment 3 Vasile Gaburici 2004-11-17 20:57:36 UTC
Same problem here with a Logitech OEM (Dell) 3-button mouse PS/2
mouse: it's frozen. I haven't tried to recompile the kernel. Just
switched to a USB mouse.

Comment 4 Vasile Gaburici 2004-11-17 20:58:35 UTC
Update: my report is against FC3 not 2.

Comment 5 Dave Jones 2005-04-16 05:07:12 UTC
Fedora Core 2 has now reached end of life, and no further updates will be
provided by Red Hat.  The Fedora legacy project will be producing further kernel
updates for security problems only.

If this bug has not been fixed in the latest Fedora Core 2 update kernel, please
try to reproduce it under Fedora Core 3, and reopen if necessary, changing the
product version accordingly.

Thank you.
