Can you give me a little more information about what happened like what mouse you had selected and when the crash occurred?
Comment 2 Russell Haskins 2002-12-11 17:09:06 UTC
I tried to expand the list under Kennsington which didn't work, then I tried to expand the list under Generic, which didn't work. I left Generic selected with emulate three button selected. When I pressed the next button I reveived the error message. With the system up and running I still can not configure the mouse.
Comment 3 Brent Fox 2002-12-11 17:16:01 UTC
So you were running firstboot in reconfig mode? That's the only way you could have seen the mouse screen in firstboot.
Comment 4 Russell Haskins 2002-12-11 17:27:35 UTC
I just recieved this system, it's a Dell Precision Workstation 530 with Linux installed by Dell. I hooked it up powered it on and followed the screens. The mouse, monitor, and keyboard are connected through a Belkin KVM. One of the screens that displayed was kudzu... I have not had a problem with the old system (linux 7.2) that this system is replacing using this KVM. But, then it was installed a long time ago...
Comment 5 Brent Fox 2002-12-11 17:44:10 UTC
Oh, ok. I understand now. Dell ships their workstations with firstboot preconfigured to run in reconfig mode. I'll do some more investigation to figure out why the crash occured.
Comment 6 Brent Fox 2002-12-12 16:17:05 UTC
Hmm, I can't seem to reproduce the behavior that you are seeing on my test machines, although I have a Precision 420 and a Precision 220, not the Precision 530. I wouldn't think that there would be much difference, though. My thought is to first try to get the mouse up and working so that you can actually use the system. Then we can try to figure out why you saw the crash during firstboot. So I have a few more questions for you: 1) Does the mouse work at all in X windows? 2) Can you try running 'mouseconfig' and picking your mouse from that list? Does that seem to help?
Comment 7 Russell Haskins 2002-12-12 16:34:02 UTC
The mouse configure tool did not work after the system finished installation and I logged in a root. But I could use the mouse. This morning I logged in as a user (not root) and ran the mouse configure tool, after entering the root password it allowed me to see the drop down lists and select the mouse I wanted. I logged out then back in as root and the mouse configure tool continued to work. The system has not been re-booted... Thanks for your help.
