Description Marc Deslauriers 2002-08-20 10:54:15 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020809

Description of problem:
I installed a laptop with a USB mouse. Next time I rebooted without the mouse
(using the internal mouse), kudzu popped up to ask me what to do about the USB
mouse being gone.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install with USB mouse
2.Reboot with laptop-integrated PS/2 mouse

Actual Results:  Kudzu pops up asking what to do...this is confusing...I don't
want to remove the config, as I may plug in the USB mouse at a later time...

Expected Results:  Since USB mouse support is always written in XFree's config
file, kudzu should ignore if a PS/2 mouse is present and a USB mouse is gone

Additional info:

This is confusing for normal users who just want to plug in their USB mouse into
there laptop when at the office.

I've got this same behavior - though my first response is to cut the kudzu S*

duplicate of bug 58901?

I think this is fixed in Bug 79627 in what will become the next Red Hat release.
 kudzu no longer bugs you about adding/removing a USB mouse if you have the PS/2
configured "as they're always configured."
