gpm error: invalid argument /dev/mouse

gpm error: invalid argument /dev/mouse

Help,  I have 1.2.8 running on a machine OK but is has a serial mouse.  I
built 1.2.13 & 1.3.20 specifying a MS Busmouse for a different machine
and both versions give me the aforementioned error.  What can I do?  What
causes it?

I have a new machine I am putting Linux on and this machine is where I'm
doing the build and this machine has the MSBusmouse.

This machine is the one with the error.



1. gpm gives error: "/dev/mouse: invalid argument" ???

Hi All,

        I am having some trouble getting my busmouse to work.

        I have an ATI Graphics Ultra board that uses a busmouse.
I followed the instructions to the letter in the busmouse-howto.
I recompiled the kernel, checked interrupts, etc.

        What I get now when I run gpm is this error message:

gpm: /dev/mouse: Invalid argument

        What is the cause of this error?

        /dev/mouse is a link pointing to the proper mouse device
according to the busmouse-howto.

        Can anyone point me in the right direction before I go
and buy a serial mouse???

Thanks for any help.

P.S.:  reply via email
