Description cadams 1998-11-10 14:06:14 EST
I installed Red Hat 5.2 on an Intel server here that does
not have a mouse attached (none of my servers do).  I used
to be able to select "no mouse" when it came time to
configure the mouse, but now I _have_ to select a mouse type
and specify what port it is on.

I can duplicate this, but chances are the fix won't get patched into
5.2. There *may* be an errata release of mouseconfig, but I doubt it.
The fix is trivial -- simply remove /etc/sysconfig/mouse.
Comment 2 David Lawrence 1999-06-28 12:14:59 EDT
No mouse option has returned in mouseconfig shipped with 6.0
Comment 3 support 2000-03-21 15:23:59 EST
It appears that the "no mouse" option disappeared again in 6.1.
Comment 4 Jay Turner 2000-03-21 15:25:59 EST
It's back again in the next release.
