external firewire hard drive linked with /dev/mouse?
This is, by far, the wierdest linux behavior I have ever seen.
I've recently installed fedora core 1 and I've been having some trouble mounting my external hard drives onto the system.
After 4-5 hours of digging, I noticed that every time I tried `lsmod sbp2` it would hang....until I changed window focus with my mouse.
Curious with this, I mounted the external firewire hard drive to a mount point and began an `ls -lR`. The terminal stayed blank...until I moved my mouse. I stopped moving the mouse. The output stopped. I moved my mouse, the output continued.
It seems that as long as I moved my mouse, the external hard drives would communicate with the kernel.
Is this just me or has anyone else experienced this? Does anyone know how I can fix this so the hard drives aren't dependent on my mouse?
