note on bug #108221 since my particular computer uses the SiS chipsets
which may be relevant.

After booting up the Ubuntu 7.04 final liveCD, my mouse pointer was
inoperative. I can also confirm bug exists on Kubuntu 7.04 final on
liveCD. I had no such problem when using 6.06 LTS versions of
Ubuntu/Kubuntu/Xubuntu from either liveCD or full install to HDD.

I've attached the relevant logs which were requested. I reiterate the
question that was asked by another person here, why is this taking so
long to fix? That this made it into the final release is not good for
Ubuntu's reputation, to say the least. As it is, Feisty is unusable for
me as a desktop OS without a functional mouse. If I can provide any more
needed info, please let me know, so a fix can be quickly put into the
repositories. I not a developer, just a regular user, but I'll help any
way I can.

By the way, since the liveCD that is out contains this bug, there are
going to be tons of linux newbies who won't have a clue how to get the
system upgraded and workable after a fix is put into the repos using
just the keyboard and without a functional mouse. Ubuntu should
immediately start offering a fixed Ubuntu CD, with a functional PS/2
mouse "out of the box" as soon as the fix is available. Additionally,
Ubuntu should provide notice at the download site that users having the
specific hardware (PS/2 mouse, SiS chipsets) that this bug is confirmed
on will not have a working mouse upon system bootup. That way, Cononical
can minimize the number of wasted CDs that will be shipped to users who
can't use them. Just my $0.02 worth.
