My serial mouse (a Genius Netmouse Pro) is not detected.  It was with 6.1.

Stupid question: are you doing a serial install?
Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2000-02-08 04:11:59 EST
No.  I tried local CD-ROM and NFS.  Of the two serial ports, only one is
occupied, and that's by the mouse.

With exactly the same hardware setup I tried a 6.1 boot disk, and that used the
mouse without trouble.

Do you have this genious mouse configures as mousesytems?
MouseSystems mouses can't be detected, so you need to set it to microsoft mode,
you can then choose a MouseSystems mouse in the installer and change the switch
after this.Never mind I didn't see the part about the 6.1 installer using it without
trouble, sorry

detection in the inital beta that has since been
