Installed Winston beta 3. During install process, told it I
had a mousesystems mouse. .Started X, realised I hadn't
toggled the little switch on the bottom of the mouse, toggled
that, it then worked properly. Then later crashed machine.
Following fsck, kudzu popped up, complaining about a
vanished mouse. I don't know whether this was due
to X crash, or to toggling the whatever-it-is underneath
the mouse. Suggestion from husband: "probably trying to
be too clever: this is a mousesystems mouse with no
plug and play identifiers on it". The mouse was definitely
still there. Really.
Subsequent crashes and fscks didn't produce kudzu so
whether this a one-off, because I fiddled with the button
beneath, or what, I dunno.
Um, changing the button on the mouse will most likely change how it responds
to the probes.
Did it actually reprobe as something else ("Generic Serial Mouse", for example?)
Closed; lack of input. Also, if the mouse changed protocols,
it probably will reprobe as something different, and
there's not much I can do about it.
