Description of problem:
Serial mouse was working fine during setup, but at the Mouse Configuration
screen it stopped working after I selected the "Microsoft Rev 2.1A or higher
Had a similar problem when configuring the mouse model in GNOME on another
machine. Mouse stopped working until machine was rebooted.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Connect a serial mouse, Rev 2.1A or higher.
2. At Mouse Configuration screen, change the default serial mouse to this
3. Click Next and mouse stops working.
Actual Results: Mouse stops working, have to reboot to get functionality back.
Expected Results: Mouse continues to work.
Is this the Mouse Configuration screen in the installation program, or one you
run after installation and reboot?
It's the Mouse Configuration screen in the installation program.
Matt is this the issue you fixed for Red Hat Linux 9?
usually this is because the mouse gets set in "generic 3 button mouse" or
"Intellimouse" protocol, when the machine is expecting the opposite. This
should be better in Red Hat Linux 9, but I do not know if it will fix this exact
problem or not.
With the completely different input subsystem in the 2.6 kernel, this
shouldn't be an issue any longer.
