Description of problem:
When Anaconda probes for hardware it tries to find an USB mouse even though it detected no USB controller beforehand.
On virtual terminal 3 (accessible with [Alt][F3]) I see (in excerpts):
* 7972 kB are available
* going to insmod (several kernel modules on several lines)
* looking for usb controllers
* no usb controller found
(detecting several other hardware)
* looking for USB mouse...
That is the last message issued before the actual install process starts. There is a notable time delay here, I'm not sure if it is related to the USB
mouse detection. There is no USB controller in my computer.
Anaconda should only try to detect an USB mouse if it has prior detected an USB controller!
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start the installation
2. Answer the questions about language and keyboard
3. Watch output on virtual terminal 3
Actual Results: Anaconda tried to detect an USB mouse even though it detected no USB controller prior to this.
Expected Results: Anaconda should only try to detect an USB mouse if it has prior to this detected an USB controller!
I used the original Red Hat Linux 7.2 installation CDs (German boxed set bought end of november 2001), booting from CD 1.
Fixed in CVS
