Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 2033
PC keyboards on sparc64
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:49 EDT
The installer correctly found my PS/2 mouse on my
sparc64/PCI system, and configured XF86Config appropriately.
Yet it did not detect that I also had a PC Keyboard, thus
XF86Config was left with "sun" as the keyboard type which
obviously didn't work.
A quick hack solution (which would work fully) would be
Into XF86Config's keyboard section if a PS/2 mouse is found,
because to my knowledge there is no way to have a PS/2 mouse
in an Ultra/PCI system and not have a PC Keyboard attached
I believe Matt has fixed this. Matt if not, please reopen.
The problem is still there in the current build.
I think I have fixed this, it is hard to test because we don't have a
box locally. I switched the test from strcasecmp to strcasestr
looking for "ps/2" as the mouse type, as I am assuming that it may be
getting set to something like "generic3ps/2" or something similar in
mouseconfig -- if we could see /etc/sysconfig/mouse it would be nice.
In any case, please give Xconfigurator 4.1.6 a whirl, and report back.
