Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 151467
hidd needs to be started in runlevels 3 and 5 (and not 6) for USB/Bluetooth mice and keyboards
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:02 EST
I am using a Logitech MX900 USB/Bluetooth mouse, which unfortunately does not
work with X upon bootup. I have to log in, alt-f2, launch a gnome-terminal and
then manually activate /etc/init.d/hidd .
Current init script looks like this:
# chkconfig: - 26 89
This really should be: - 235 89
Not too sure quite why one would want to run hidd in runlevel 6!
If a system has the bluez-utils package installed, it should at least start in a
runlevel where it's services are required.
This may also include runlevel 3 (such as when there is a USB/Bluetooth keyboard).
Current bluez-utils is 2.15-4.
Oops. Ok I got that a bit wrong...
But I still think the statement should be:
# chkconfig 5 26 89
at the very least. If the user has a bluetooth mouse or keyboard and therefore
requires hidd, they are almost certainly going to want it to run under X
