Description of problem:
In my Winbook XP, When I try to install RH 7.3 (or 7.2)
I cannot get my built in mouse to work, either of them. The Touchpad or the
trackpoint device. They both work fine under RH 7.0
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Try to install
2.Installer cannot find the built in Mouse (toouchpad or the built in
3.After install /usr/sbin/setup -> mouse none of the options there will work
Actual Results: Mouse will not work
Log in as root and run this command and please attach the output:
kudzu -p --class=mouse
On the install no mouse was found , on the first startup kudzu finds a generic 2
button ps2 mouse. That does not work.
Here is the info you wanted:
Nothing happens at all! And the system locks up. it locks up when I try to use
the touch pad or track point (winbook xl has both).
This is there also fyi PCMCIA Yenta list 0698 PCI IRQ 12
And from a cat /proc/interrupts i see XT-PIC Texas Instruments PCI1131 (#2), PS2
mouse on IRQ 12
I also tried to change to no mouse, but the kudzu command stil gives no output.
BUT it does not lock the system.
NEXT I re boot without the WLan PCMCIA card and..
Same thing the IRQ 12 must be for the PCMCIA contrroller not just a card in the
Appears kudzu does not detect this device, reassigning.
If I stop pcmcia I can get the mouse to work fine.
This is due to the IRQ 12 I mentioned in first post.
Closing out bugs on older, no longer supported releases. Apologies for any lack
of response. Please attempt to confirm with more recent releases.
