Description of problem:
After upgrading from 2.4.18-3 to 2.4.18-4 when the machine boots kudzu reports that my mouse has been removed from the system.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.boot your mouse will be there
4.boot kudzu will report that the mouse is gone
I am attaching two dmesg outputs one is the 2.4.18-3 dmesg output
the next is the 2.4.18-4 output.
Created attachment 57346 [details]
dmesg output from working kernel boot
Created attachment 57347 [details]
dmesg output from non-working kernel boot
Created attachment 57624 [details]
Patch from working to non-working dmesg
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
Yes I can reboot into the 2.4.18-3 kernel and everything works fine.
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.
Ok; can you track which exact kernel you used for 2.4.18-4 ?
(I mean the i386, i586, i686 or athlon version ?)
The kernel-2.4.18-4 that I installed was i386.
