Description of problem:
The Beta4/Limbo2 installed does not detect the Toshiba Satelite 5005-S504
onboard trackpad. Insetead it appears to laod the drivers for a PS/2 mouse,
which isn't present (and there are no ps/2 ports, so...). The mouse is then
unusable for the install.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start installer on a Toshiba Satellite 5005-s504
2. Attempt to use trackpad in GUI installer
3. Mouse doesn't move

Actual Results:  Anaconda seems to think there's a PS/2 mouse somewhere. I'd
love to see it. Console 3 shows :
* looking for USB mouse...
* USB mouse found, loading mousedev module
* modules to insert mousedev
* module(s) mousedev not found
* load module set done

Expected Results:  The trackpad works as the mouse

Additional info:

As soon as I'm done installing, I can attach the output of logfiles and /proc
info as needed.

Bill any ideas on why kudzu would have us think this is a PS/2 mouse?
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2002-08-12 15:12:41 EDT
Not really. Can you post the logfiles and the output of /proc/bus/usb/devices?
