Description of problem:
I4 ve got simple 3 Button PS/2 mouse. The mouse was detected during installation
During the first reboot (after installation) kudzu displays that there is no
generic PS/2 mouse available and asks me to keep configuration / remove
configuration / ignore.
To make it clear: I tried every possibility - none of them caused any action.
So when I tried to log in, the mouse AND the keyboard freezes. I tired to plug
in several PS/2 mouses but the result is the same. Here is a desciption what I4
ve already tired.
- tried to take a look at /proc/pci to see if IRQ 12 (that is assigned to a PS/2
mouse by default) is already used -> it4 s not
- tried to take a look at /proc/isapnp to see if IRQ 12 is already used -> that4
s what I4 ve found:
Logical device 3 'ESS0002:Unknown'
Compatible device PNP0600
Device is active
Active port 0x168,0x36e
Active IRQ 12 [0x2]
So I guess that there is a conflict with that sound card. It is a ESS ES1868
Plug and Play AudioDrive.
Perhaps anyone could tell me how to fix that issue
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

1.boot into system
3.ps/2 mouse is not detected
Actual Results: X freezes, Mouse and Keyboard do not work
Expected Results: X should work
The kernel should not be assigning IRQ 12 to anything with the PnP code, almost
