Laptop pointer goes wild when PS/2 mouse unplugged
Hi, I've been having a rather odd problem - whenever I boot my system with a PS/2 mouse plugged in, then unplug at any point, I completely lose control of the mouse pointer. The touchpad's controls are met with erratic motions, and ditto for when I plug the mouse back in. I'm currently running Mandrake 10.0 CE on a Dell Inspiron 2650. I had the same problem when I was running Debian with the 2.4 kernel. The only distribution that has seemed to address this issue was Knoppix 3.3 - under knoppix, I could freely unplug and replug my mouse without a hitch. The only way I've found to correct the erratic motions is to restart my system and make sure the mouse did not get unplugged.
