Description of problem:
Red Hat Linux was installed with another type of mouse. After installation,
/etc/sysconfig/mouse contained this text:
When "mouseconfig" was run to change the configuration to "Generic - 3 Button
Mouse (serial)", the program would crash trying to reference the "DEVICE" item
in one of its dictionary variables. Adding DEVICE=/dev/ttyS0 to
/etc/sysconfig/mouse allowed the program to operate normally.
Please fix the program to initialize all required variables to default values
before loading the config file.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install with non-serial mouse
2. run mouseconfig
3. select "Generic - 3 Button Mouse (serial)"
4. hit the "OK" button
Actual Results: program crashes
Expected Results: program should show the serial devices available.
Can you attach the debug output when the program crashes?

Should be fixed in redhat-config-mouse-1.1.1-1. Thanks for your report.
