Description of problem:
Anaconda detects the Genius NetScroll+ Eye mouse (PS/2)
as a Generic - 3 buttons mouse (PS/2).
This is correct but not the best choice however.
After some experiments I found out that the best choice is
the Microsoft - IntelliMouse (PS/2). The difference is that
drivers for IntelliMouse enables mouse wheel.
This selection happens in all redhat distributions probably.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start installation process and wait for mouse detection
2. Look for the mouse devices section
Actual Results: There will be Generic - 3 buttons mouse (PS/2) mouse detected.
Expected Results: The Microsoft - Intellimouse (PS/2) which is a better choice.
Bill does kudzu detect the wheel on PS/2 mice?
As well as it can. It's done by poking the mouse protocol
In current releases, this is all done through the 2.6 kernel's input layer
automatically, and there's nothing else to be done. Therefore, closing this bug out.
