Description of problem:
My mouse (logitech USB optical) quit working a after a few minutes (30
sec to 5 min) when running opengl in full screen. tested with Q3, cube
and ut2003, with both KDE and GNOME (fc2 up2dated versions). The
problem doesnt occur in windowd mode. Keyboard, dri etc works still
fine. Quiting the apps doesnt resolve the problem; no mouse until
xserver restart.

Tried with the gpm repeater (-R raw), via /dev/gpmdata; the behaviour
is the same...

I guess the problem was something like a conflict on the USB ports.
Deleting all USB entry from the /etc/sysconf/hwconf and rebooting with
kudzu re-configuring everything arranged the problem.

happy fraggin'

reopening the bug...

It does not only happens in dri 3D environment but in desktop also
(tested with kde/gnome). Mouse quit working randomly when cursor is
moved when pressing a key (that's why it occured in q3 kind games).
Launching 'usbview' makes it work again, so i'm not sure that it's a
xorg bug. The previous workaround has no effect anymore...

Comment 4 Sinan H 2004-08-12 12:17:30 UTC
Same as the kernel bug #124378 (or very similar). 
the proposed solution (turning off the legacy USB emulation) works for
me. Closing.
