Comment 1 Alexandre Oliva 2002-08-21 01:41:39 EDT
I've duplicated the problem by running redhat-config-mouse within X, or even in
text mode with X already running.  Apparently it only runs properly when X
hasn't grabbed the mouse (even though it does break the mouse set up while it
attempts to detect it).
Comment 2 Alexandre Oliva 2002-08-21 01:50:44 EDT
The only way I've been able to run it successfully was to init 3 the box, log
into X on another box, ssh into the one I want to change the mouse config, and
then run redhat-config-mouse with X display tunneling through the SSH
connection.  Only then does it probe a PS/2 mouse correctly.  Mine is a Genius
NetScroll+, FWIW.
Comment 3 Brent Fox 2002-08-22 15:40:32 EDT
Should be fixed with rhpl-0.47-1 and redhat-config-mouse-1.0.0-1.

QA, please verify.
Comment 4 Jay Turner 2002-09-03 08:19:01 EDT
