Description Marius Andreiana 2003-01-29 13:13:55 UTC
Seems all serial mice aren't detected ( I've tried two, somebody confirmed it on
phoebe list ).

They work if manually configured with mouseconfig.

Comment 1 Michael Schwendt 2003-01-29 15:29:20 UTC
Confirmed. Fails for me with both Phoebe 8.0.92 and 8.0.93. Copying from bug #80332:

  Probing for mouse: No - mouse

Suffice to say, mouse detection worked flawlessly with older versions of Red Hat
Linux, including the Limbo and (null) betas. My mouse is a classic 3-button
serial mouse from Logitech on /dev/ttyS1. Kernel info from Valhalla:

02f8-02ff : serial(auto)
03f8-03ff : serial(auto)

Serial driver version 5.05c (2001-07-08) with MANY_PORTS MULTIPORT SHARE_IRQ
ttyS0 at 0x03f8 (irq = 4) is a 16550A
ttyS1 at 0x02f8 (irq = 3) is a 16550A

Please download http://people.redhat.com/notting/kudzu/kudzu,
and run (as root, with gpm disabled, on the console)

kudzu -p -b serial

Also, try kudzu2 in the same location.
