Description Christian Rose 2000-08-03 13:30:09 EDT
I have a regular PS/2 two-button mouse on my test system, and running
Pinstripe text mode install doesn't give me a mouse selection screen at

Previous betas did.

Is this a bug or a feature? (ie is there some weirdness and a serious bug
or is there just some sort of a newer, really smart mouse auto-detection in

I'm able to move the mouse in the X test start ("can you see this message")
and in the first few moments on a newly started X on the installed system,
but X hangs shortly after I try to move a window. Don't know if that
problem is related, but I entered that X problem in bug 15089.

Your mouse was probed automatically so you didn't get prompted.
