kudzu claims ps2 mouse is removed when it is not
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:33:15 EDT
Description of problem:
If I set SAFE=yes in /etc/sysconfig/kudzu,
then kudzu on next boot claims that my PS/2 mouse
was removed and offers to unconfigure it.
This is on RH8.0 ( Psyche ) with kudzu-0.99.69-1.
I upgraded to kudzu-0.99.83-1 and it behaves the same.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. configure a RH8.0 system with a PS/2 mouse
2. edit /etc/sysconfig/kudzu to say SAFE=yes
during bootup kudzu claims that the mouse was removed
normal bootup, without kudzu messages
safe probe disables the PS/2 probe.
If it is disabled, why is it done anyway ?
It "detects" that the mouse is removed and changes the system configuration
accordingly. Why, if its disabled ?
Recommended fix :
- detect changes
- IF safemode && ps2_mouse_changed THEN
IGNORE THAT ( because we don't know if it did really change )
do as usual
Fixed in kudzu-0.99.97-1.
