Description Ed McKenzie 2001-06-18 20:32:46 EDT
Description of Problem:
My USB mouse (Logitech MouseMan Wheel) is pretty frustrating to use under
2.4.5-0.2.9 -- it seems like it's dropping lots of events.  The cursor
jitters across the screen like it's OD'd on caffeine (it seems to be
jumping about on some kind of grid) and the wheel barely works at all.

How Reproducible:
100%.  The 2.4.5-0.2.9+xfs kernel in SGI's betatesting area behaves exactly
in the same way. 2.4.2-2 is a much more pleasant experience.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot 2.4.5-0.2.9
2. Start X
3. Move the mouse around, and try scrolling in 

I was beginning to fear I my mouse was dying until I downgraded to 2.4.2-2. :)

Comment 2 Pete Zaitcev 2001-06-20 20:50:41 EDT
Please try 2.4.5-1 as soon as it hits rawhide.
Comment 3 Pete Zaitcev 2001-06-25 16:44:45 EDT
Errata is out! Try 2.4.3-12, should work there.
Comment 4 Ed McKenzie 2001-06-25 18:23:24 EDT
Yep, the errata works.  Of course, if I weren't interested in playing with ext3, I wouldn't have been running 2.4.5 to begin with. (-:
Comment 5 Pete Zaitcev 2001-06-25 18:33:38 EDT
Oops, my mistake... What about the 2.4.5-1 Rawhide then?
I personally checked that the head CVS branch has the fix.
It is about time it worked its way into nightly builds.
Comment 6 Ed McKenzie 2001-06-25 23:18:00 EDT
Rawhide doesn't appear to have been updated for several days.  2.4.5-0.4 is
still the newest version available from rawhide.redhat.com.
Comment 7 Pete Zaitcev 2001-06-25 23:29:52 EDT
You are right, 2.4.5-1 did not make it. Let me investigate
how this pipeline works in more detail...
Comment 8 Ed McKenzie 2001-07-03 09:07:07 EDT
Fixed in 2.4.5-10.
