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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to install with the mouse plugged into the PS/2 mouse port.
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?
Is hotplug to blame?
I don't see how it could be, as it doesn't try to handle psaux at all, in any way.
I suspect gpm is to blame; I've seen the same however my mouse did just work....
even though anaconda didn't find it
gpm isn't running during the install, or at the time kudzu runs.
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
