MS Intellimouce and other mice with more than the left, right, and scroll
wheel are and can't be setup (selected and setup) by anaconda or mouseconfig.
It does not seem to be hard to get them to work and they should be able to
work out of the box.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Use anaconda or moseconfig
One part of the problem is there is currently no support in the kernel for
probing the number of buttons/etc on a mouse. This will hopefully be addressed
in the near future.
Are you also saying there is no way to manually configure this?
It can be done manually but it would better way better if the Red Hat installer had an option for MS Intellimouse Explorer/Optical/.. and then have the
installer edit the config files.
The following page has how it is done
also see IMWheel homepage at
This will also make the scroll wheel work in Netscape 4.x
Will add to list of features to conside for future releases. We are feature
frozen at this point of the development cycle.
We have options for Intellimice and generic wheel mice now
