Description Harald Hoyer 2002-07-16 08:38:34 EDT
upon startup, redhat-config-mouse make my mouse misbehaving
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2002-07-16 22:42:01 EDT
What sort of mouse do you have?
Comment 2 Harald Hoyer 2002-07-17 06:05:26 EDT
M$ Wheel Mouse (IMPS/2)
Comment 3 Matt Harvey 2002-07-20 05:37:28 EDT
Same here. MS Intellimouse PS/2 wheel. Running redhat-config-mouse in X causes
the mouse to act weird and then the program dies and it goes back to normal.
Running mouseconfig from the console modified my XF86Config in such a way that X
would not start. I had to add CorePointer and CoreKeyboard directives into the
ServerLayout section to get it working again.

The reason I was running the mouse tool in the first place is that the
wheel/third button did not work after standard install. In hidsight, it looks
like the way to fix this was to change the mouse device from /dev/input/mice to
/dev/psaux, in my particular case of Intellimouse PS/2 Wheel.

Seem on my Dell I4000 laptop too.  I have a USB mouse that redhat-config-mouse
doesn't work for...it just borks my XF86Config as described above.  The PS/2
touchpad and trackpoint work though...I believe that was configured by anaconda.
 I'll attach the config file the redhat-config-mouse generates.

Comment 6 Brent Fox 2002-08-08 23:17:37 EDT
This should be fixed in 0.9.9-2.  

QA, please verify.  I think we have some IntelliMouse PS/2 mice to test with.

Appears to be working lots better with redhat-config-mouse-0.9.9-3.
