MS intellimouse optical usb mouse does not work in the installer, but
seems to be detected when probed before the installer first loads
Passing to qa to reproduce.
We (Red Hat) should really fix this before next release
I had this same problem with RH 7.0. I am currently using mine with the PS2
adaptor so it is a PS2 mouse instead of a USB mouse with 7.0.
the mouse worked with 7.0's installer, and its just didnt work in 7.1's, i got
7.1 running and its deteced fine
Possibly related, my Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer USB Optical Mouse only
works in UP mode. So it works for the installer, but not when I boot the
enterprise or SMP kernel. When I boot the UP kernel, it works great. This
mouse works fine with the PS2 adapter, though. This was the case in 7.0, as well.
I had the same problem with my Logitech USB optical mouse. As soon as I put
the PS/2 adaptor on the mouse worked just fine in the installer.
Some USB mice were not detected in the Fisher beta, and this bug has been fixed.
