Comment 4 Michael K. Johnson 2002-05-16 14:59:33 EDT
We didn't change anything in this area between the two kernels, and
I have seen no other reports of this behavior.

Have you determined that downgrading to 2.4.18-3 gives you your
mouse back?
Comment 5 Need Real Name 2002-05-16 16:08:42 EDT
Yes I can reboot into the 2.4.18-3 kernel and everything works fine.
Comment 6 Michael K. Johnson 2002-05-17 14:20:34 EDT
Because you have a uniprocessor system, you will not be affected by
the ext3 bug fixed in 2.4.18-4, so 2.4.18-3 is a reasonable workaround
for you until the problem is fixed.
Comment 7 Arjan van de Ven 2002-05-20 15:11:17 EDT
Ok; can you track which exact kernel you used for 2.4.18-4 ?
(I mean the i386, i586, i686 or athlon version ?)
Comment 8 Need Real Name 2002-05-20 16:34:58 EDT
The kernel-2.4.18-4 that I installed was i386. 
Comment 9 Bugzilla owner 2004-09-30 11:39:34 EDT
Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
