    IBM optical Mouse trouble

    When installing Red Hat 8.0 , the operating system detected my IBM optical mouse to be a 3 button usb mouse. The mouse was working i was able to use the mouse the throughout installation. However once the installation finished, and i rebooted for the first time a mouse optical light goes off, and a program call Kudzu open asking me that the Arrow USB mouse has been disabled when i attempt to configure it back or even skip kudzu the mouse still remains unfunctional??? I am new to linux is there a way i can the mouse to work.

    *PS * ON the first installation of Red Hat the mouse was working and even after installation and using the computer with GNOME on the desktop the mouse still worked. however after I reinstalled red Hat for more options and packages the mouse fail after the first reboot.

    reboot and let kudzu detect the change, just go with it - remove the config that it has and let it configure the new one - redhat 8 has full support for the microsoft optical mice, like the one next to my keyboard that i sometimes use

    Quiet brain, or I\'ll stab you with a Q-tip.
