Description of problem:
When installing or using mouseconfig, my Logitech cordless wheelmouse is not
recognized as well as other wheel mouses. There is no "generic wheelmouse" in
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start mouseconfig
2. try to find the correct mouse type
3. start X and try to use the wheel
Actual Results: Wheel not working.
Expected Results: Wheel is working.

I have just completed a text mode interface for redhat-config-mouse, which means
that mouseconfig will be deprecated in the next release of Red Hat Linux.

bugs, so I'm closing this as 'wontfix'.
Changed to 'CLOSED' state since 'RESOLVED' has been deprecated.
