Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 3888
gpm goes bezerk
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:51 EDT
It seems that on some SMP systems that gpm will suddenly go
bezerk during an X session. After posting to the SMP mailing
list and the kernel mailing list, I found that it was
specific to 2.2 and SMP machines. It seems that it has
something to do with the interrupts.
can you please be a bit more specific? GPM isn't actually being used
of course when you are using X, even though it may still be running.
Please thoroughly describe the problem symptoms, and relevant
bug seemed to be related to kernel issues, and only for serial mouse,
but reporter has since switched to ps/2 mouse. We will investigate
this problem with later versions of the kernel.
