KVM Wheel Mouse

I have a KVM connected to my FC3 Linux box and when I try to use the wheel mouse the pointer jumps to the right side of the screen and in effect does not scroll.

To fix this I added the following argument to the end grub.conf file.

#vi /etc/grub.conf

Find the line that starts something like this (obviously substitute your kernel version, I am running 2.6.10-1.730)... kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.10-1.730_FC3 ro root=.......

If you have updated your kernel you will have multiple such lines, the easy way is to update them all, or you can update only the one you are using.. Check the "default=" line to know which one you are using by default, remember it starts with 0 not 1.

At the very end of the line add the following

rhgb quiet nousb psmouse.proto=imps

then save, close and reboot.

For reference my current example is..

kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.10-1.730_FC3 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quiet nousb psmouse.proto=imps
