I also have the issue of my mouse not moving. However to me this only happens
when i load a game. On a normal gnome desktop session the mouse works fine, as
soon as i fire up UT2004 my mouse wont move left/right, only up/down
I am also using a logitec cordless desktop (not usb)

Is this the same problem as 434669?
Ok, upgraded to rawhide as of yesterday's updates. Keyboard seemed to work (for
the most part) this time, but the mouse still only moved vertically and not
horizontally. Have moved back to F8 but saved xorg.log and config from the
update and error.

Just a note, that I retried to install from rawhide today, but upon the first
GUI screen, to click "Next" and start it, the mouse still only went vertically
and not horizontally. So something in the kernel, or something else is not
correct, right off the bat. I couldn't proceed with the install, so I exited.
This was a clean install, or attempt, using anaconda, not yum. Maybe this
belongs to something else if not x involved at that point?
Tried to install rawhide yesterday, and at least during the install, the mouse
did work this time all throughout it. Anaconda did a traceback at the end of
package install, sometime during grub or after and didn't get to test out while
in teh desktop. So will know more in the next few days if this bug still
So far after the install (had same rhgb/upstart/selinux error everyone else
got), the mouse seems to work OK. I think I have the same problem as everyone
else, as middle/right mouse buttons are reversed.
Thanks for letting us know.
