Description Ed McKenzie 2001-03-01 17:59:47 EST
The Wolverine installer (still) detects a PS/2 mouse on my motherboard and
hangs on the opening screen of the install. My mouse is a Logitech USB, but
I don't think that's relevant (the GUI installer still locks up with no
mouse at all plugged in.)

I don't think it's actually a complete freeze. Letting it detect the mouse
as ps2, I tried starting gpm, which locked up the keyboard (but the system
was still running; the vesafb cursor was still blinking, and the hard drive
was still grinding from anacron.)

Reassigning to kernel, as I've seen this other places besides anaconda.
