I'm trying to install Slackware 8.0 on my computer. I can complete the
install but my mouse just won't work (USB Microsoft one). I've rebuilt the
kernel with usb support and the USB hub works fine, the light even comes on
on my mouse and if i view /var/log/messages I see record of the mouse being
unplugged and replugged and it gets assigned a device number... its just my
/dev/mouse pointer is not pointing to it... how do I find out which
/dev(ice) my mouse has been assigned to.
Notably during Slackware setup I tell it my mouse is USB. However I can't
use the USB boot disk as I have to use the ata100.i one just to get it to
recognise my HPT370 IDE controller. So after installing I rebuild the kernel
and the light comes on on the mouse and I can register it plugging and
unplugging but no device (?) and certainly not /dev/mouse corresponds to it
.. when I try to 'startx' it crashes out saying no core pointing device.
Someone please help...
Thanks in advance
