nforce + RedHat 8.0 = Bad USB
I just upgraded from RedHat 7.3 to 8.0, and it broke my mouse. I have a usb optical logitech mouse, and when I start linux It finds it, and I can configure it, but if I move the mouse of the screen more then an inch, (in the terminal or X) it locks the machine.

I have an ASUS a7n266-e running the default redhat 8.0 kernel and I can't figure out how to get this to work.

P.S. the mouse works with the usb to ps/2 adaptor, but I loose the scrolly thingy.

Nearly same problem
I am running with the same motherboard and mouse and my mouse doesn't work either. It doesn't lock X; it does not respond correctly, it just sits in the upper right hand corner, flicking around rapidly in response to my moving it.

got the mouse to work, and the audio as well.... looks like complete success with installing the drivers. I just use the generic two button mouse setting, no scroll unfortunately though.

What did you do to make it work?

I went into "start here" "system settings" "mouse"
chose generic two button and then ok
then I hit ctrl alt backspace to kill X
then I restarted X

It works just fine as a two button mouse, I haven't had a chance to try any other settings, though.

Good Luck
