I have the "Slackware 96" distribution of Linux 2.0.0 which came with
XFree86 3.1.2, and I run it on my Gateway 2000 Solo 2100. The display
aspect works fine, but I can't get the touchpad to work. Linux detects
the PS/2 mouse port, and if I cat /dev/psaux and move the mouse, I see
things, but in the XF86Config I have tried all combinations of Protocols
Microsoft and PS/2 and Devices /dev/psaux and /dev/mouse, but none of
them let me move the pointer (the pointer stays in the center). I can't
figure out what gives.
I don't know if this would be related, but when I disable the internal
touchpad and use an external [Logitech] mouse, the movement is erratic,
and again, I have tried all combinations of Protocols Microsoft,
Logitech, and Mouseman with Devices /dev/mouse and /dev/ttyS0 (BIOS says
it's COM1). So, if anyone out there could help me, I'd greatly
appreciate it. Thanks in advance.
