Repeating info in messages regarding USB mouse


My /var/log/messages file on a newly loaded CentOS box is throwing the following errors over and over again. Does this mean I have a bad mouse or the USB port is bad or something else?

Two things come to mind.
1) What is the output of lsusb
2) Unplug the USB mouse, wait 5-10 seconds, then plug it in again and show us the output of dmesg | tail.

I can't see anything in that log that indicates an issue either with your mouse or your USB port.
The /var/log/messages file is not where you would usually look for an error message. Is there a reason why you're looking it there? I mean, is your mouse not working at all or experiencing intermitent issues?
Quote:
For example, the information contained in /var/log/messages include the following:
1) Date and time the message was written.
2) Name of the utility, program or daemon that caused the message.
3) Action that occurred.
4) Executing program's hostname.
(taken from here)
This may be a shot in the dark, but if that is the case, I'd go with a faulty USB mouse (I've heard of lots of USB mice with damaged cables, especially if they're used a lot).
Hope it helps.

Nah, mouse works fine as far as I know, its lit up and everything. Was just looking in messages out of curiosity, to see what the new loaded but idle server has been up to if anything, then noticed these messages, just found them odd.

there are some known issues with the wireless logitech devices atm, not just in Linux either, but in MS world too. In fact there are several distros out there were they are completely useless. the devs for the fedora team are working on a fix atm they have yet to find one.

if yours works, leave it be, but be mindful that even as nice as their designs are their USB connector is one of the worst out there.
