Description of problem:
The mouse is not detected by Anaconda. Generic mouse has to be choosed, and on
firt reboot the mouse will be detected correctly by Kudzu. Minor bug probably
related to the USB of the machine which is recent (Shuttle SS51G)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Get a Shuttle SS51G ;-)
2.Boot no first CD with an USB Logitech mouse plugged
3. Anaconda safys no mouse
If the mouse is plugged with a PS/2 adapter it sees it.
Actual Results: Once Kudzu configures the mouse it works very fine.
Expected Results: USB does not seem te be detected by boot kernel. Perhaps
because thi machine uses an USB2.
Shuttle SS51G. 2.6 GHz, 512 Mb DDR 333
Last BIOS update applied.
USB active on BIOS.
Logitech optical mouse, product says: "Logitech mouse, wheel mouse. Model
M-BJ58. S/N: 830525-0000. Kudzu says: "Logitech Optical Mouse USB-PS/2"
We should also have the USB2 module present when booting from CD, but that
shouldn't matter for the usb mouse case.
Arjan -- do you know of any reason why usb wouldn't work on this machine in the
I do not know exactly why the USB is not working with the BOOT kernel.
The Shuttle SS51G is an USB 2 machine, so if your BOOT kernel only supports
1.1 USB then it won't work. When booting under Red Hat Linux 8.0 the mouse
"blinks" as I see the optical diode flashing while Anaconda runs, but it
remains turned off and then Anaconda says there is no mouse. The USB seems off
once the BOOT kernel loaded.
Adding myself to the bug cc: list.
My Logitech USB optical wheel mouse is not detected properly either....
My Benq optical USB mouse is also not detected.Is there any way to
circumvent this problem?.
Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
