Description of problem:
During the install of FC3T2 the probe for mouse type returned a value
of Generic - 3 button mouse (PS/2). I don't have a PS/2 mouse. I
have a Microsoft Intellimouse (USB). This mouse has the two extra
buttons on the side usually for moving forward or back a page in a
brower. The two side buttons don't work like they should. The back
button goes to a random page I visited, and the forward button brings
up the same menu as a right click.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install FC3T2 with a USB mouse
Actual Results: The mouse works, but why does the installer think I
have a PS/2 mouse?
Expected Results: It should have returned a value of Microsoft
Unfortunately, this is what the 2.6 kernel thinks all mice are (and it
matters little as they all go through the input layer).
