No. The "reinstall when in doubt" is a *windows* thing. Also, you
don't touch /etc/udev/rulses.d/50-udev.rules, but you might need to
create/add a line to /etc/udev/rulses.d/10-local.rules. You probably
don't need to though, since I think a PS/2 should be handled properly.
You might try setting up the console mouse services. Strange as that
sounds, it is what has worked for me.
Run '/usr/bin/system-config-mouse' and follow the steps.
