Description Steven W. Orr 2005-07-18 14:47:18 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050524 Fedora/1.0.4-4 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
I tried to install FC4 onto a slightly older PC with a Logitech Serial Mouseman 3button mouse. When the install cd was running, it claimed that it found a generic 2button PS2 mouse. But when the graphical install came up the mouse was dead.

I was able to go forward by selecting the text install.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install CD
2. System finds generic 2button PS2 mouse instead of Logitech 3 button Mouseman

Actual Results:  I rebooted into text install to avoid use of mouse.

Expected Results:  Mouse should have been responsive.

Serial mice are not supported within anaconda.
