Description Chris Runge 2000-01-22 23:59:35 UTC
during the install I select the Intellimouse PS/2.  gpm is correctly
configured, however X is not -- it has the PS/2 mouse selected, which
causes erratic/useless mouse behavior under X.  To fix I changed

Section "Pointer"
    Protocol    "IMPS/2"
    Device      "/dev/mouse"
    ZAxisMapping 4 5

(The Protocol section used to say PS/2 before I fixed it).

This was present in beta 1 as well.

Can you guys have a look at this Dr. Mike?  It's installer-related, not XFree86

Comment 2 Hans de Goede 2000-01-30 21:36:59 UTC
I had the same problem over here, the problem is in the XF86Config generated,
/etc/sysconfig/mouse is fine.

Comment 3 Hans de Goede 2000-01-30 22:15:59 UTC
Talking about the imps2 selection in the gtk installer, when you select the
imps2 mouse, the emulate 3 buttons gets selected automaticly, shouldn't this be
unselected automaticly, since the imps2 has 3 buttons?

This issue is resolved in the latest installer code (available in beta)
