Bug#314954: kernel: USB Mouse dies
This bug report applies at least to kernel-image-2.6.11-1-686. I'm not
sure if other kernels are affected.
This bug is a regression from kernel-image-2.6.10-1-686.
The mouse is Logitech Optical USB mouse. The mouse device the X Server
uses is "/dev/input/mice".
The problem is, my X server "loses" the mouse after a random amount of
time. There's nothing in the log files about this. The light of the
mouse is still on then. What it doesn't lose is the touchpad.
There are two ways to get it working again:
- unplug and replug the mouse
- restart the gpm
The biggest problem for me is to reproduce this bug, because "random
amount of time" is between 10 minutes and some hours.
As far as I remember, gpm is also losing the mouse.
