mouse not detected if not moved during startup (FC5)
I have troubles with my M$ intellimouse (part of m$ wireless optical desktop 1.0A).
This is a wireless mouse, connected to a receiver - the receiver has both PS/2 and USB connectors both ends are plugged to the PC : PS2 for keyboard and USB for mouse.
This config worked find under Fedora Core 1 (FC1), but since I upgraded to FC5, there is an annoying problem
- if I boot my PC normally (without touching anything), the mouse does not work (mouse stuck in the middle of the screen)
- if I boot my PC, and move my mouse during the startup (when the text bootmessages are shown on the screen) ... the mouse works
If I diff the two "dmesg" outputs, I see the lines
< input: Microsoft Microsoft Wireless Optical Desktop� 1.00 as /class/input/input2
< input: USB HID v1.11 Mouse [Microsoft Microsoft Wireless Optical Desktop� 1.00] on usb-0000:00:10.1-1
appearing only when mouse is detected.
Are-there any parameter I can pass to the kernel, or any initfile to modify in order to force the detection of the mouse ?
did you try unpluggin the mouse and plugging it back in to see if it detects it after boot? This will help to rule out a couple of solutions.
Thanks kg4ysy - apparently the problem dissepeared today. I tried today 2-3 reboots, and the mouse was correctly detected... strange (I did not upgrade my system). I'll post a message if the problem arises again.
That's Linux for you...the ever classic "I swear I did nothing"
Haha...I actually had a few cases of that yesterday.
Well... I know... Again I did nothing, and the bug came back -
I noticed during boot time (the very first lines of boot screens) that "udev" could not start :
starting udev.... [FAIL]
If I unplug and replug the USB connector of the mouse, it is not detected (still stuck in the middle of the screen).
