Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 829678
USB mouse pointer gets stuck
Last modified: 2012-09-12 08:00:06 EDT
Description of problem:
Moving the mouse does not always cause the pointer to start moving straight away. Sometimes there is a second or two where it stays put. This eventually gets more frequent until finally the pointer stops responding to mouse movements altogether.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Works fine with booting back into kernel-3.3.7-1.fc17.x86_64.

Patch to prevent automatic update to kernels resulting i problems:
diff -c yum.conf.std yum.conf
*** yum.conf.std 2012-06-07 11:50:49.000000000 -0400
--- yum.conf 2012-06-17 11:28:05.307139119 -0400

# This is the default, if you make this bigger yum won't see if the metadata
# is newer on the remote and so you'll "gain" the bandwidth of not having to
# download the new metadata and "pay" for it by yum not having correct
Oops. Above patch is reversed. In a normal forward patch file, the file names would have been yum.conf and yum.conf.<modified> .
I no longer see this problem when using kernel-3.4.2-4.fc17.x86_64.
Peter, there's nothing in your dmesg attachments that looks odd. Did you upload them to the right bug?
Also, have you updated udev to udev-182-3.fc17 ?
I will have acces to the machine where this problem occurs in a couple of weeks. Meahwhile, I've found plugging the mouse into the USB port on the front makes the problem occur less frequently.
