Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 143781
PS2 mouse/keyboard lockup if to remove and reinsert either of these.
Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:14:24 EST
Description of problem:
If to plug out the PS2 mouse or keyboard and then reinsert it then the
usual effect is the lockup of this device and if You are very "lucky"
then both devices are in lockup state until You reboot the box.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I recall kernel 2.2 series as having this issue. 2.4 and 2.6 has the
same issue as well.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start up the FC and unplug the PS2 keyboard/mouse or both;
2. Reinsert these;
Usually the keyboard/mouse is in lockup state where no pressing or
moving will have no effect.
If the first time does not bring up this issue then unplug/reinsert
these devices again.
