    2.6 & Mouse Issues

    Is there some issue with kernel 2.6 & mice? It seems that no matter how I build 2.6, the mouse is not detected. When I boot 2.6 and startx to kde, the cursor is on the screen, but can not be moved. I have tried using XF86Config as is, as well as rewriting XF86Config using xf86cfg. Neither works. Additionally, I orginally built 2.6 by copying my old config from 2.4.20. That didn't work, so I rebuilt 2.6, using make menuconfig, from scratch. Nothing works. The mouse and XF86Config work fine under Gentoo-Sources, so I have no idea what is happening under 2.6. Any hints or suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated.

    you need event device and mouse support for USB mouse, as well as usbmouse or hid support.

    /dev/input/mice is the normal device btw.

    Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Don't eat too much!

    I don't have a usb mouse, is a simple ps/2. I am not sure if I had the usb devfs enabled or not, will have to check that. (And yes I feel like quite the idiot for not being able to figure this out, without asking for help!)
