Description of problem:
The mouse doesn't work the first time I boot the system. So, when the
system have loaded I have to reboot to get the mouse working. The
problem happens when the computer is off and I switch it on, but it
never happens when I reboot the system.

My system is a laptop with a synaptic and PS/2 mouse installed. If I
unplug the PS/2 mouse, the problem persists with the synaptic mouse.
Once I reboot, both mouses work perfectly. Other way to make it work
without rebooting all the system is to press Ctrl+Alt+Del in the grub
menu. So I can make a "fast" reboot. Surprisingly it works too.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Booting the system from a cold state (current off)

Actual Results:  The mouse doesn't work after I reboot once

Expected Results:  The mouse should work from the first time I boot

Additional info:

I first detected the problem when I upgraded from a 2.4.x kernel to a
2.6.x kernel running Fedora Core 1. With 2.4 there was no problem. I
have tried several 2.6 kernels, some compiled by me, but I obtain the
same problem with all of them.
Now I have the same problem in Fedora Core 2
Comment 1 Dave Jones 2005-04-16 00:13:04 EDT
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.
