Description Craig Kelley 2001-03-08 18:03:17 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.4.1-0.1.9 i686; en-US; 0.9)

I have a Logitech Wheel Mouse PS/2, but both anaconda and mouseconfig say
it must be USB.  :)  I tried the USB option on installation and it freaked
out the first time X11 started up.  I re-ran mouseconfig and lied by saying
it was a generic 3-button mouse and then manually edited
/etc/X11/XF86Config to uncommont the ZAxisMapping there (it worked fine
after that).

Kudos on the new installer.  It autodetected *everything* in my system
(Radeon 32DDR, 3Com NIC, even my 21" monitor!).  I like it.

which selection did you choose in mouseconfig that made a non-working X

Comment 2 Craig Kelley 2001-03-08 22:10:17 EST
I chose Logitech Wheel Mouse (USB), which caused X11 to not start.  It *is* a Logitech Wheel Mouse, but it is PS/2 and not USB.
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2001-03-08 22:23:06 EST
Do you have a USB keyboard?
Comment 4 Craig Kelley 2001-03-08 22:35:17 EST
No.  There were plenty of PS/2 options in the anaconda/mouseconfig window, but the Logitech Wheel Mouse wasn't one of them.  You just need to add a 
new entry that is just like the Logitech Wheel Mouse (USB), but make /dev/mouse a soft link to /dev/psaux instead of USB.
Comment 5 Craig Kelley 2001-03-08 22:36:02 EST
(And call it Logitech Wheel Mouse (PS/2) instead)
Comment 6 Matt Wilson 2001-03-08 22:48:41 EST
don't select the "USB" option if you don't have a USB mouse.
I'll see about adding an entry.
Comment 7 Josh Cogliati 2003-07-02 10:13:24 EDT
On the other hand, if you have a USB mouse, and set the protocol to USB, X11
will not start.  Also the mouse wheel will not work.
