Using serial mouse in m/c with PS/2 mouseport locks system
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:49 EDT
If you have a machine with a PS/2 mouse port but a serial
mouse, probing will incorrectly identify your mouse as a
PS/2 type. For some reason, if this happens and you then
start the X server, the machine will freeze so badly that
the reset button is the only way out.
