Does this work without the KVM?  

Is the KVM using USB or are you using a usb to ps2 converter.

Can you switch to tty2 (Ctrl-Alt-F2) and give me the output of 

cat /proc/bus/input/devices
Comment 2 Melvin Yam 2004-11-24 13:36:45 EST
Yes the mouse work without the KVM.

The KVM is using PS/2
The mouse is a USB mouse. I am using a USB to PS2 converter.

Comment 4 Paul Nasrat 2004-11-24 15:06:46 EST
Note this is a kernel boot argument so should be appended to the boot line
through grub
Comment 5 Melvin Yam 2004-11-25 10:55:43 EST
After booting in DVD,
at the boot: prompt,
I typed "linux psmouse.resetafter=3"
and then I pressed Enter

It boots and load anaconda installer.
Detects my mouse as Generic 3-button mouse and
then in graphical mode, same thing happens,
my mouse does not work. The mouse pointer is there
but when I move my mouse, the pointer does not move.

Comment 6 Paul Nasrat 2004-11-25 11:24:32 EST
Can you retry this time with psmouse.proto=bare
Comment 7 Melvin Yam 2004-11-26 13:50:50 EST
Yes it works!
