Solaris 10 Installation Guide for IBM BladeCenter Servers

6339376: Hot-Plugged Mouse Undetected if Not Present Prior to Xorg Server Startup

Description: If an IBM BladeCenter server owns the KVM and no physical mouse is attached prior to the Xorg server startup, /dev/mouse is unusable if the mouse protocol in the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file is set to auto. Any attempt to hot-plug a mouse is refused.

Workaround: Download and apply the latest revision of patch 121803 or install at least the Solaris 10 6/06 OS.
