Description John Arrowwood 2001-11-02 15:58:11 UTC

Description of problem:
I attached a serial mouse to my laptop (which uses a ps/2 mouse 
internally).  When it booted, Kudzu detected the serial mouse and set it 
up for me.  

I found an additional problem not related to this one that prompted me to 
run Xconfigurator.  It complained about a problem with 
the /etc/sysconfig/mouse file and ran Mouseconfig.  After Mouseconfig ran, 
it still wouldn't work.

The error message was that line 5 was unexpected.  Apparently it didn't 
like the line that specifies the device that the mouse is attached to.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have Kudzu or Mouseconfig change from PS/2 to Serial mouse
2. Run Xconfigurator

Actual Results:  Line 5 of /etc/sysconfig/mouse was "unexpected" according 
to Xconfigurator, which caused it to re-run mouseconfig, which didn't help.

Expected Results:  It should have worked, of course... :)

Additional info:

My guess is simply that Mouseconfig and Kudzu were updated to add a line 
that Anaconda doesn't generate and Xconfigurator wasn't updated to handle 
that additional line.
