Can you attach your /etc/sysconfig/mouse file?
Please attach /etc/sysconfig/mouse, the output of cat
/proc/bus/input/devices and grep usb /etc/modprobe.conf
USB mice are working for other people - including myself.
I've experienced this exact same problem over the past 2-3 years on
several Dell computers with Logitech USB mice running several
different versions of Red Hat/Fedora linux, but it's generally been
intermittant. If the mouse failed after a reboot, another reboot
would often fix the problem. Sometimes it seemed to help to power off
completely before booting.
With FC2 and kernel (2.6.8-1.521) the problem is much worse so that
the mouse fails almost every time. I just tried disabling legacy USB
support in the BIOS and the mouse came up the first time. I don't
know yet if this has really fixed the problem or not.
Question: Is the correct module name "uhci-hcd" (with hyphen) or
"uhci_hcd" (with underscore)? The module file name in
.../kernel/drivers/usb/host/ is uhci-hcd.ko, but the name given by
/sbin/lsmod is uhci_hcd. My modprobe.conf file contains the version
with the hyphen.
This problem might be related to bug 124378 (which is where I picked
up the idea of disabling legacy USB support).
I will attach my versions of /etc/sysconfig/mouse, the output of cat
/proc/bus/input/devices and grep usb /etc/modprobe.conf, although I am
not the original poster.

Can the original reporter confirm that disabling legacy usb support in
their BIOS resolves this issue for them.
Closing due to lack of additional data from original reporter. If the original
poster wants to confirm behaviour with bios changes, feel free to reopen.
