Description of problem:
After an uneventful (no errors) install of 7.1 I wanted to enable my X
GUI. Xconfigurator found the display OK. It bombed when finding the mouse.
The top of the blue screen said:
"/usr/sbin/mouseconfig: line 5 unexpected in /etc/sysconfig/mouse"
The middle of the screen says:
"There was an error reading the file /etc/sysconfig/mouse"
I tried many things... mouseconfig, switching ports, switching hardware
manually editing the /etc/sysconfig/mouse file, etc.
The mouse is a serial Microsoft mouse on the first serial port.
I have been unable to solve this problem.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run Xconfigurator or mouseconfig
Actual Results: See description above...
Expected Results: X GUI should have been created.
Have you tried Red Hat errata? Both Xconfigurator and mouseconfig have been
updated. If that fixes your problem close you bug.
This was fixed in the errata release.
After installing new mouseconfig and xconfigurator versions (as you
recommended), the problem was resolved.
