PS/2 mouse did not work after temp removal of USB mouse
Running SuSE Linux 8.2 (Personal).
The regular mouse used on the system is a USB wireless/optical/rechargable mouse.
When the batteries are being recharged, the mouse cannot be used. While the system was turned off, the USB mouse was unplugged and a standard PS/2 mouse was plugged in. After a restart, the PS/2 mouse did not work, nor did YaST start automatically to configure the mouse, it's as if the PS/2 mouse did not even exist.
As the PS/2 mouse is also an optical, its sensor was lit, meaning the mouse had power going to it. The PS/2 mouse also did not work on subsequent restarts booting into Linux.
This is a dual-boot system with Windows 98. When it booted into Windows, the PS/2 mouse worked fine.
The PS/2 mouse was removed this morning, the USB mouse plugged back in as the batteries are fully recharged, and the USB mouse is working perfectly as expected.
Any thoughts as to why the PS/2 mouse wasn't recognized after the temporary removal of the USB mouse?
