Description Chris Rouch 2001-11-26 11:29:59 EST
Description of Problem:

I have a compaq armada m700 with a nipple as a mouse. This is deemed a PS/2 mouse by mouseconfig. I also have a PS/2 port, into which I plug an external mouse. If I boot with the external mouse *dusconnected* and connect it once I get the gdm screen, then both mice work as expected. If I leave the external mouse connected while I boot then using either mouse results in the cursor jumping to the top of the screen and then jumping around at the top.

However if I disable kudzu, the mouse will behave even if the external mouse is left connect on boot up.

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

How Reproducible:
Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Plug in external mouse while system is off
2. Boot
3. try to use mouse

Actual Results:

cursor moves to top of screen and stays there

Expected Results:

cursor tracks mouse movements
