Comment 3 antonio montagnani 2009-05-04 06:30:53 EDT
is this connected to bug 474264 ???
Comment 4 antonio montagnani 2009-05-04 12:55:53 EDT
some improvement (i.e. number of freezes is lower) installing kernel 2.6.29.2-126.fc11.i686.PAE from koij...
Comment 5 antonio montagnani 2009-05-04 13:01:22 EDT
forgot to say that in most cases hitting Tab key makes mouse de-freeze...
Comment 6 antonio montagnani 2009-05-04 16:11:44 EDT
but installing new xorg-X11-server from koij make the situation worst

Comment 8 antonio montagnani 2009-05-04 16:52:50 EDT
why is the Mouse section missing in xorg.conf file???
Comment 9 antonio montagnani 2009-05-05 00:14:18 EDT
I was running on nv driver or nouveau driver with problems, but if I switch to a poor standard vesa driver everything seems o.k.

Shall I change the component or kernel is to e blamed????
Comment 10 antonio montagnani 2009-05-05 00:27:02 EDT
Casa kernel: psmouse.c: resync failed, issuing reconnect request 

This message is still seen with vesa driver but less ferquently, so the user is not experiencing heavy locks of mouse!!!
Comment 11 antonio montagnani 2009-05-05 16:51:02 EDT
replacing the mouse solved the issue...sorry for the noise, I was tracked off by messages about psmouse.c!!!!

Were I on  MsWindows, I should have replaced the mouse in advance as user is blind :-)

I am closing the bug....
