Description of problem:
This is a Toshiba notebook with builtin PS/2 mouse (2 buttons). I have a
3-button USB mouse, which works fine.
I installed telling it USB, 3-button. During installation _both_ mice worked. In
the installed system only the USB mouse works. I tried reconfiguring for a PS/2
mouse, same result.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Configure PS/2 mouse (USB plugged in)
Actual Results: PS/2 doesn work, even after reiniting XFree86 and gpm.
Expected Results: Both mice working (hopefully...)
If it worked during installation, that means XFree86 works with both
just fine, so it isn't an XFree86 bug. I'm betting that the config
used during install, and the one generated for usage on the system
by anaconda/redhat-config-xfree86 are different. It's probably a
config tool glitch.
Can you try running "redhat-config-xfree86 --reconfig" and see if
you can get it to work again?
I've CC'd our tool maintainers.
Yep, the suggestion of reconfiguring XFree86 did work. Thanks!
Just the video card here is a Trident CyberBlade XPAi1 (rev 82), which XFree86
insists on handling as a generic VESA card. The CyberBlade XP driver does work
fine (and gets 1024x768 24 bits on this screen, as it should).
But the initial (with mouse not working) configuration was written by the installer?
The configuration was written by the update from rawhide to RH 8.0, AFAIU. It
might have been old (from RH 7.3 perhaps).
Closing bug as NOTABUG since you've indicated that reconfiguration fixed it
so was is likely just a config glitch/inconsistency of some kind.
