PS2 Mouse inoperative in Fedora release 8 under Virtual PC.
Last modified: 2009-01-09 00:56:32 EST
Description of problem: PS2 Mouse inoperative. See bug report 223606. Similar
if not the same. Running Fedora in a Windows Virtual PC environment. Fedora
Kernel 2.6.15-1.2054_FC5 works fine. Updated to 2.6.20-1.2320.fc5 and mouse is
nonfunctional. The same in 22.214.171.124-42.fc8 (release 8). I've tried the various
tweaks suggested in 223606's thread, but apparently I've not got the correct magic.
HW: Dell Optiplex 755
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora release 8 (126.96.36.199-42.fc8)
How reproducible: Every time
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot fedora in Windows Virtual PC session.
3. set video depth in xorg.conf to "DefaultDepth 16"
GUI comes up but mouse is unresponsive.
If you suspect this is the same type of issue as bug #223606 you'll probably
want to give similar information.
Is there any obvious error or warning messages when you run dmesg?
What type of mouse do you have?
If you boot the box from a Fedora 8 Live CD instead of Windows Virtual PC do you
have the same problem?
reassigning to kernel as gnome-common doesn't interact with the mouse at all.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 8. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '8'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 8's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 8 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-01-07. Fedora 8 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
