Mouse problem with 1.3.xx kernels

Mouse problem with 1.3.xx kernels

Post by Steve Woodru » Tue, 24 Oct 1995 04:00:00



Since upgrading to the more recent 1.3.2x kernels (and above) my
serial mouse has started acting very odd.  It no longer responds to
the clicking of the buttons as expected, rather it will take random
clicks.  Note that this is only a console problem, and it does not
have this problem while in X.  I have added no new hardware so i
can not believe that there is a hardware conflict.  Has anyone
else encountered this problem?

1. S-Ware 3.0, compiling kernel 1.2.xx or 1.3.xx doesn't happen

I just purchased the Slackware 3.0 with ELF.  I installed most of the packages
on the disk including gcc(2.6.3) and g++.  

If copy an 1.2.xx kernel from the kernel disk and setup the /usr/include links  
and try to compile the kernel I get many undefined references.  So I make the
changes to /linux/arch/i386/Makefile as the README says to do.  Now if I try
to 'MAKE DEP' I get a:
        gcc installation error: cannot exec cpp
OK, so I set /usr/bin/cpp -> g++
        Now it completes the depend part with many warnings about not using
the link file as linking was not performed.  However when I try to compile it
says that it cannot execute cc1 and bombs out very soon.

If I try to compile a 1.3.xx kernel I just get a bunch of undefined refernce
error and it fails to compile.  What am I doing wrong?  I have looked at sever
README files and it looks like I did everything right.

Thanks in advance.
