Description Dag Wieers 2002-08-19 14:48:33 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.5 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20020606

Description of problem:
When you have no mouse (or a disfunctional mouse) connected to the system,
Anaconda will simply crash with an error-message. (I typed it just yet, but
Galeon decided to hang just before I had the change to submit it ;-((() So just
try it, to see what it says. BTW Limbo installed just fine without a mouse.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Disconnect mouse
2. Start install
3. And watch

Actual Results:  Anaconda crashes and bails out.

Expected Results:  Anaconda should let me install without a mouse (like eg.
Limbo did).

Additional info:

Limbo worked without mouse.
