I need help using my mouse in Linux. On my old Pentium 100 machine I
had a serial mouse connected to a serial port or com1. When I set up
Linux, I set up the device to point to /dev/cua0 (for com1). This
worked - I was able to get into Linux and use X windows and the mouse
I've since upgraded to a Pentium II 350 with a BX6 motherboard. I have
connected up a PS/2 mouse and it works fine in windows 98. It is on IRQ
12. However, when I go into Linux and into X windows - the mouse
doesn't move. It is not connected to com1 (IRQ3) anymore.
So is that the problem??? How do I get Linux to work with a PS/2 mouse
on IRQ12??? I guess I have to assign the /dev/mouse device to some
Could someone please help???
