Description of problem:
I had been using kernel-smp-2.6.13-1.1532_FC4
that is, the kernel version is 2.6.13-1.1532_FC4smp
My IBM trackpoint keyboards with pass-through PS/2
ports (a Model M13 and a Trackpoint IV) both worked
just fine. I upgraded to the newer package of
kernel-smp-2.6.14-1.1653_FC4 and the mouse now
fails to work. I went back to old kernel and the
keyboard and mouse works again.
The machine is a dual Opteron 242 with 2GB of RAM on
a Tyan Tiger K8W (S2875 / AGP AMD 8xxx chipset).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot using new kernel
Actual Results: logitech trackman marble FX attached to the pass-through port of
model M13 or trackpoint IV keyboard stops working. If I use a
PS/2 KVM switch, the pass-though mouse stops working when it was
previously working on the other computer once I perform my usual
switchover keypresses. When I detach the linux computer it gets
back to working again.
Expected Results: it should just work like it always did.
error occurs without the KVM switch too.
Please save the output of dmesg for both kernels (with "dmesg > /tmp/d.out")
and attach both d.out to the bug. Please do not drop in the comments box!
