Description of problem:
Kudzu of Fedora Core 1 sets IMPS/2 for (X)MOUSETYPE in 
/etc/sysconfig/mouse but the touchpad isn't working fine using init 3 
and gpm. So the cursor hops and buckels strange and marks text I 
didn't want to mark and pastes also at using the touchpad - a typical 
IMPS/2 problem. 

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

How reproducible:
Everytime, see below.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have a HP Omnibook 6100 
2. Install Fedora Core 1 (textbased/minimal installation)
3. Boot it
4. Get the touchpad problem :(

Another way to Reproduce:
# enable kudzu for bootup
rm -f /etc/sysconfig/mouse
rm -f /etc/sysconfig/hwconf
Actual results:
Diff from non-working to working configuration file:

Expected results:
Fine working touchpad, having automatically the default 
MOUSETYPE="ps2" and XMOUSETYPE="PS2" in /etc/sysconfig/mouse like

Generic Mouse (PS/2) shouldn't be getting set to IMPS2 by
system-config-mouse ever.
Comment 2 Robert Scheck 2004-10-01 12:45:24 EDT
I'll close this bug report with "wontfix", because the live time of 
Fedora Core 1 is over. I think this issue isn't relevant to Fedora 
Core 2 and 3. Maybe the original issue is solved by the Fedora Legacy
