Description Joe Ceklosky 1999-05-12 14:11:33 UTC
I have a Jetta (Mitac) 7050XL laptop and installed Redhat 6.0 on it. It has a PS/2 mouse pad mouse on it. During the install when it probes to find the mouse type it states it's a PS/2, which is right, but it lock up the machine. This is reproduceable ever single time. To get around it you have to install in expert mode to NOT autoprobe. I have also installed 5.2 on the same machine many times. It NEVER locked up probing for the mouse. The machine runs linux without a hitch. I installed using the image on the CD with the autoboot.bat file.

I will forward this to the install developer and see if he has any ideas about this, or whether we can track down another user of this system, as we do not have one in the test lab.

What are they doing in the probing differently between 5.2 and 6.0? It worked fine in 5.2!
Comment 3 Joe Ceklosky 1999-05-20 15:12:59 UTC
Also note running mouseconfig after the install is ok. It's just when the installer probes to see what kind of mouse in is the system. It is a standard PS/2 touchpad mouse. Another thing to point out. I had the same problem with the isntaller probing in Redhat 5.9. The install does work fine in expert mode since it does NOT do the probing. I have Redhat 6.0 installed on the laptop with kernel 2.2.9 now running perfectly.

*** Bug 3398 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. *** The installation freeze when probing for the mouse type on a laptop M5033 (RH 5.2 was working there) with a mouse touchpad ------- Additional Comments From 06/15/99 06:30 ------- Same exact problem experienced with a Samsung VM6000 series laptop w/ touchpad. ------- Additional Comments From firstname.lastname@example.org 06/17/99 06:34 ------- This could well be related to bug #2762

I see the same problem on a Digital HiNote Ultra 2000 (lockup during autoprobe for mouse). I had no such problems with redhat 5.2.

This should be fixed in 6.2
