Description Joshua Jensen 2000-08-10 16:43:26 EDT
In the installer, I select Microsoft IntelliMouse PS/2.

The FULLNAME variable in /etc/sysconfig/mouse says:
"Microsoft - IntelliMouse (PS/2)"

This really breaks gpm and X mouse functionality.
Running mouseconfig corrects things, as detailed below:

The FULLNAME line should be:
"Microsoft - IntelliMouse (PS/2)"

Looks like /etc/X11/XF86Config was broken by the installer using
Emulate3Buttons (which I *unchecked* because I didn't want it), and Device
/dev/psaux (instead of /dev/mouse... this part isn't really a bug, but why
not set up correctly like mouseconfig does?).

I have orignal and fixed config files, should you want to look at them.

Sorry, I got the "fix" to /etc/sysconfig/mouse wrong before... here it is now:
The FULLNAME line should be:
"Microsoft IntelliMouse (PS/2)"
