APM and Accupoint problems with kernel 2.0.6

APM and Accupoint problems with kernel 2.0.6

Post by Jacob Wallstr » Mon, 16 Sep 1996 04:00:00



I have read the FAQs but not been able to find any answer to
the following problems:

According to the dmesg output found in "Linux on the Toshiba
410CS Laptop" (http://qed.econ.queensu.ca/~edd/t100cs.html),
the kernel will print info about the APM and PS/2 mouse support
during startup.

I am running a Toshiba 100CS with Debian Linux 1.1, kernel
version 2.0.6 and APM version 2.4. It has APM support and a
built-in PS/2 compatible pointing device. During startup I do
not get any info about APM support or the PS/2 mouse. When I
later try to start X it aborts saying that it can't find the
mouse device.

Grateful for any help,
Jacob
