Comment 4 Michael K. Johnson 2002-05-16 18:59:33 UTC
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 20:08:42 UTC
Yes I can reboot into the 2.4.18-3 kernel and everything works fine.

Comment 6 Michael K. Johnson 2002-05-17 18:20:34 UTC
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 19:11:17 UTC
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 20:34:58 UTC
The kernel-2.4.18-4 that I installed was i386. 

Comment 9 Bugzilla owner 2004-09-30 15:39:34 UTC
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/
