I'm able to make this work by adding
Chipset "Trio 32/64"
to XF86Config. At this point I'm not certain if this is a new X bug in that you
didn't need to do this before or a redhat-config-xfree86 bug in that it should
be adding this to the config file.
Please try with redhat-config-xfree86-0.7.1-2 in Rawhide. I think that the
first traceback you saw is because the /etc/X11/XF86Config file doesn't exist
and the mouse cannot be probed. I was seeing this problem on my wife's machine,
but I'm not seeing it anymore.
I think this is a dupe of bug #80115. Please reopen this bug if the new version
doesn't fix the problem.
