My genius ps/2 netmouse used in redhat 8.0 didn't work anymore in phoebe. In
phoebe2 is wasn't detected, in phoebe3 it's detected as generic (ok) but it
doesn't work ( in console with gpm, in X ). If I set it manually to genius
netmouse, the arrow moves only left-rigt in upper part of the screen, no up-down.
I've just booted from red hat 8.0 install CD, it is recogniez as generic ps/2
and works in graphical mode.
Tested with antoher ps/2 wheeled mouse ( noname ) and that doesn't work too. All
ps/2 mice worked fine for me in red hat 8.0

Asus A7V. Please let me know what other info I should provide
Just tried this mouse on a matsonic with viavt823 chipset and phoebe3, it works
fine. However, it used to work fine on the Asus A7V with redhat 8.0 too.

On current releases the PS/2 protocol is handled in the kernel; if the kernel
