Description of problem:
After installin RH 7.1 on a PC with Crystal Audio sound card the mouse
stop working. X hangs. Console hangs as soon as you move the mouse.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install RH 7.1 with sound configuration on a PC with a CS4232.
2.Restart the PC in Graphic mode to have non mouse and keyboard input
2b.Restart in console mode.
3b.Move the mouse to have no mouse and keyboard input allowed.
Actual Results: I tried to work around that problem. First I stopped gpm
so that moving the mouse will not cause system stop responding. Then I
tried to configure mouse again. Tring to configure mouse I found errors on
mouseconfig, which keeps adding a DEVICE=/dev/mouse to its script without
beeing able to interpret it.
Expected Results: I should have been able to cnfigure my
I have decided to post this bug for two reasons.
1) There are bug reports very similar to this one, but no one has a strong
link between cs4232 and mouse problem , but often I saw this sound card
appearing on the cat /proc/interrupts output. So posting this bug could
help indentifing and debugging the problem.
2) I am ready to reproduce the whole problem, as I have tried many of the
suggestion for solution of the bugs reports i have found on this site,
without any improovement on my situation.
Since I'm a newby I need help to know which step to take and what to look
for. I think I can be of help if guided trhough the process.
I don't know if this bug posting is moderated or not, is so you could
choose to delete this entry and put it on one of theese, whic are one way
or another simliar.
List of bug reports which are very similar to my own:
If you keep this as a separate entry would be great if you add those entry
as dependant to this one or the other way around.
Another hint, if I take control of the linux box with a ssh connection
everything works fin even with X; but if the system is not responding to
mouse and keyboard, as stated above, I could not ssh to it, not even ping
I cry of help and hope:
"Give good hind on how to help myself for the resolution of this bug.
It's a pity if such a good OS is left nearly useless by such a problem."
(Please forgive my english as is not my mother language.)
Later RH hands out interrupts to PnP devices to avoid clashes with the PS/2
mouse port. That ought to have fixed this problem but need confirmation
