Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 89870
(USB)Logitech USB optical mouse isn't recognized by RH9 upgrade kernel-18.104.22.168

Description of problem:
Logitech USB optical wheel mouse is not recognized as USB device at boot time by
RH9 upgrade kernel-22.214.171.124 (but kernel-126.96.36.199 works fine).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Plug the mouse in question into a USB port on a fast Intel PC (2.40 MHz or
faster) running RH9 kernel-188.8.131.52
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot or reboot
2. Notice how the mouse usually isn't recognized when the boot process gets to
USB device recognition.
No mouse recognition. Optical light goes out and stays out. Boot process
continues. One can log in, but without a mouse, one can't do much more than log
out and reboot.
The mouse is recognized.
I suspect a timing problem. In RH 8, mouse recognition would also fail if the
mouse was jiggled ever so slightly at the time of USB recognition during boot up.
I am also using Logitech Optical Mouse with USB interface (Model Number: M-
BJ58) on my Sony Vaio PCG-FX770TK Notebook (USB 1.1 port).
I have found that the USB mouse is not detected under the latest kernel upgrade
to kernel-2.4.20-13.9. No red light emitted from the mouse either.
What was the last kernel that worked?
Also, please attach the output of "dmesg", taken after experimenting
with the mouse (not right after reboot). Please do not drop it into
the comments box.
Please try 2.4.20-18. If that fails I still need the dmesg.
Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem
The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases,
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
