Description of problem:
I have a Compaq-labeled PS/2 Logitech Wheel Mouse (M/N M-S69) that was working
fine with beta1 but was not detected by beta2, either in Anaconda (doing a GUI
or TUI install) or after installation by Kudzu.
May be a driver problem.  Also, I have only a USB keyboard if that makes any

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to install with the mouse plugged into the PS/2 mouse port.

Additional info:

This is a new Compaq Presario 5430, which comes with a USB keyboard (with a Visa
smart card reader) yet also comes with a PS/2 mouse (not USB)...

Arjan, did anything change in the PS/2 driver between 2.4.9 and 2.4.18 that
would cause it to act different if there was no keyboard?
Comment 2 Matt Wilson 2002-03-25 16:11:43 EST
Is hotplug to blame?
Comment 3 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2002-03-25 16:44:51 EST
I don't see how it could be, as it doesn't try to handle psaux at all, in any way.
Comment 4 Arjan van de Ven 2002-04-09 08:34:43 EDT
I suspect gpm is to blame; I've seen the same however my mouse did just work....
even though anaconda didn't find it
Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2002-04-09 11:25:24 EDT
gpm isn't running during the install, or at the time kudzu runs.
Comment 6 Arjan van de Ven 2002-04-12 08:35:01 EDT
Ok nailed this bug; the PS/2 code was "improved" for hotplug ps/2 rodents,
however this improvement wasn't. Removed and now my machine finds it's mouse
