Hello all

I have an intermittent problem (or it used to be until this morning) in that some times when I boot up my laptop (Del E6410) the external optical mouse performance is very choppy. In the past I would just reboot the laptop and all would be well. This morning that has not been the case and I am having to use the touch pad as a mouse because the usb mouse is all but unusable.

I am going to have a deeper look at the /var/log/messages and other log files now but thought if any of you good people have seen this before you could point me in the right direction.

Interestingly the problem only occurs after logging in. Before I log in the mouse is smooth, once logged in once thats it...poor mouse performance. I would guess that when I log in something is getting loaded that is causing a problem with the usb driver for the mouse.

Thanks for your help team.

Cheers

I've been having the exact same issue, somewhat frequently (25-30% of the time) in FC14/catalyst, and much less frequently (~5%) in FC15/radonhd free

Hiya dsmithhfx

It normally is just a pain in the rear having to reboot to get the mouse to work correctly but today for the life of me it would not work. I am not sure if this has anything to do with it but if i keep moving the mouse when I log in it seems to resolve the problem....for now that it ;-)

let hope that someone come up with the root cause.

this is now a much larger problem for me as I can now no longer use my USB 3G modem.
looking in the /var/log/messages file I get the error
"failed to enable/disable modem sending command failed: resource temporarily unavailable"
I am sure that the issue is another service is taking control of my USB bus, any idea how I can find out what?
please help....have to send this from my phone :-(
