Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 462888
Logitech wireless mouse stopped working after update to 18.104.22.168-29.fc9.i686
Last modified: 2008-09-22 00:44:37 EDT
Description of problem:
I use a Logitech Cordless Desktop EX110 keyboard/mouse combo. This has a wireless keyboard and mouse. The keyboard works ok after the update but the mouse does not.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Kernel updated to 22.214.171.124-29.fc9.i686
Install latest updates, from 126.96.36.199-108.fc9.i686 to 188.8.131.52-29.fc9.i686. There were a number of updates applied, the details of which I do not know but the update to the kernel was as described above.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Begin with a kernel 184.108.40.206-108.fc9.i686.
2. Apply updates that show up in the updater.
3. Restart machine into 220.127.116.11-29.fc9.i686.
The mouse does not respond at all.
The mouse pointer should work as normal.
Booting into kernel 18.104.22.168-108.fc9.i686 after the update makes no difference. I suspect the kernel has nothing to do with this as a number of updates were applied at the same time, but this is the only visible update I can relate to. If there is a way to determine what updates were applied on a particular date I can provide more information.
I have also done a diff on xorg.conf between the updated and old file and there are no obvious differences.
When doing a ll on the /dev/input directory, I have two devices:
mouse1 appears to give output when moving the mouse during a cat mouse1 command. I don't know what configuration file has changed that prevents the mouse from working.
Thanks for the bug report. We have reviewed the information you have provided above, and there is some additional information we require that will be helpful in our diagnosis of this issue.
Please attach your X server config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf), X server log file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log), /var/log/messages, and /var/log/dmesg to the bug report as individual uncompressed file attachments using the bugzilla file attachment link below.
Could you please also try to run without any /etc/X11/xorg.conf whatsoever and let X11 autodetect your display and video card? Attach to this bug /var/log/Xorg.0.log from this attempt as well, please.
We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.
Thanks in advance.

I forgot to add in the initial bug report that the nvidia kernel module could not be loaded because it is not compatible with kernel 22.214.171.124-29.fc9.i686. Still I can't see this being the problem though I expect the logs attached to contain errors related to this.
I will try running without /etc/X11/xorg.conf and report back with the results.

/var/log/Xorg.0.log after running without /etc/X11/xorg.conf
I have a Nvidia AGP graphics card 5900XT. /var/log/Xorg.0.log is attached after running without /etc/X11/xorg.conf. I did this by moving xorg.conf to xorg.cong.test and restarting the machine. It did boot into a graphical mode, but apart from ctrl+alt+del nothing else would work on the keyboard and I couldn't log in as a result. Restarting into run level 3 and moving xorg.conf back restored keyboard functionality.
Mouse still did not function throughout the test.
