Description Andrew Scott 2004-06-30 21:11:56 EDT
Description of problem:
Upon install, gpm is not configured correctly for the ps/2 mouse in a
panasonic toughbook.  Overriding the values in /etc/sysconfig/gpm with
options of "-t ps2 -m /dev/mouse" fixes the problem.  Though putting
these values into the respective fields, or trying mouseconfig or
system-config-mouse does not work.

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

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1.  remove the options added to /etc/sysconfig/gpm
2.  hup gpm (/etc/init.d/gpm restart)
3.  no mouse
Actual results:
no mouse

Expected results:
mouse should work after a system-config-mouse or mouseconfig run

Additional info:

Config settings go in /etc/sysconfig/mouse. Please test gpm for that
as well as system-config-* and reopen if the newest rpm packages
still give problems?
Comment 2 Eido Inoue 2004-10-11 11:11:30 EDT
comment 1: in the 2.6 kernel, all mice appear as Intellimouse (up or
downcoverted) "exps/2". In addition, there should be a /dev/input/mice
device on test3, not a /dev/mouse.
