Description of problem:
I think it would be an improvement if there's a hint
of which mousedriver to select for enabling the
wheelmouse in the helpfile of the Mouse Configuration
screen in Anaconda.
For example, I have a HP mouse with 2 mouse buttons
(PS/2 connector) and a scrollwheel.
Anaconda selects/detects automatically the standard
PS/2 mouse driver (which does not let me use the
mousewheel after Linux installation is completed).
If I want scrollmouse support, I have to manually
select the Microsoft IntelliMouse driver.
It would be nice if the helpfile of this configuration
screen would briefly mention this.
Most new Linux users probably will not know that they
can do this procedure to enable wheelmouse support, so
maybe with a little hint...
(the very nicest thing ofcourse, is to have Anaconda
detect automatically the presence of a mouse with a
scrollwheel, but that's another story.. :-) )
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Linux, and observe the Mouse Configuration screen.
Actual Results: There's no hint on how to enable wheel mouse support.
Expected Results: Some new Linux user would appreciate a slight hint at the
Mouse Configuration screen how to enable wheel mouse support :-).
This information is already in the Installation Guide. It has now been added to
the help text as requested and will be available for reference during the next
