Description cadams 1998-11-10 19:06:14 UTC
I installed Red Hat 5.2 on an Intel server here that does
not have a mouse attached (none of my servers do).  I used
to be able to select "no mouse" when it came time to
configure the mouse, but now I _have_ to select a mouse type
and specify what port it is on.

Comment 1 Preston Brown 1998-11-13 17:19:59 UTC
I can duplicate this, but chances are the fix won't get patched into
5.2. There *may* be an errata release of mouseconfig, but I doubt it.
The fix is trivial -- simply remove /etc/sysconfig/mouse.

Comment 2 David Lawrence 1999-06-28 16:14:59 UTC
No mouse option has returned in mouseconfig shipped with 6.0

Comment 3 support 2000-03-21 20:23:59 UTC
It appears that the "no mouse" option disappeared again in 6.1.

Comment 4 Jay Turner 2000-03-21 20:25:59 UTC
It's back again in the next release.
