Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 182030
Loss of mouse sync through kvm after software update
Last modified: 2008-01-19 23:41:21 EST
After a clean install of FC5 T2 mouse detection worked as expected due to the
new mouse detection code, introduced about kernel 2.6.13, that resets the mouse
after x bad packets are recieved.
However after running an update, booting into either the new or old kernel
produced loss of mouse sync after switching with the KVM. Prior to the update
there were no issues.
I have booted my system 3 times since the update and each time the mouse is
lost. I have tried alt-ctrl-F2 but this does nothing. Sync loss is total and
leaves the pointer unable to move at all. _This is not a kvm or mouse problem_
RedHat 9 and WunXP work perfectly and as stated above my FC5-T2 evaluation
system worked until the update. This is a bug introduced in the updated
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC5 T2
3. Reboot then switch systems with kvm
Complete loss of mouse sync.
Mouse should work.
These bugs are being closed since a large number of updates have been released
after the FC5 test1 and test2 releases. Kindly update your system by running yum
update as root user or try out the third and final test version of FC5 being
released in a short while and verify if the bugs are still present on the system
.Reopen or file new bug reports as appropriate after confirming the presence of
this issue. Thanks

systems unbootable. If you have been affected by this problem
please check you only have one version of device-mapper & lvm2
installed. See bug 207474 for further details.
