Description of problem:
I have 2-button Microsoft Serial mouse that never gets automatically
detected during RedHat install . I have to manually configure it
as "Microsoft Compatible (Serial)" to make it work.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run mouseconfig tool
Actual Results: mouse not detected automatically
Expected Results: to be able to see the mouse at COM port 1:(/dev/ttyS0)
I have used all RedHat releases from RedHat 5.2-RedHat 7.1. Problem exists
in all versions. Interestingly Mandrake 7.x can detect my mouse
automatically during install.
Very very odd, as the Mandrake serial probe:
is almost exactly the same code as what we use in kudzu for serial mouse
detection. Are you sure it's not just the default in Mandrake?
Moving comp to kudzu, that's where the detection is.
Closing out bugs on older, no longer supported releases. Apologies for any lack
of response. Please attempt to confirm with more recent releases.
