Compaq bus mouse

Compaq bus mouse

Post by Rick Poleshu » Fri, 11 Feb 1994 05:05:06

I am using Linux with a Compaq 486/33. Unfortunately, I have not been able to
get the bus mouse to work. Has anyone out there solved this problem??

Unfortunately, I have limited access to news. Please reply by email?

Thanx in advance.

1. Bus Mouse - MS Inport Bus mouse will not work

I have an MS InPort Mouse. It is from an early vintage, a "Dove Bar" SN
I have it hardware configured at Interrupt 5.
The mouse works correctly under the DOS mouse driver and passes hardware

I am Running RedHat Linux i386 v 5.2
I have read through and tried the combinations from the BusMouse-HOWTO
Specifically, I have booted with the LILO parameter > linux bmouse=5
Startup messages confirm that interrupt 5 is assigned to the bus mouse:
"Logitech bus mouse detected, using IRQ 5" Followed by:
"ATI Inport Bus mouse detected and installed."
gpm gives an error on startup " gpm: /dev/mouse : Operation not supported by
My /dev/mouse is a link to /dev/inport which is at major device number 10,
minor 2.
I have tried using XF86Setup and configuring the mouse as:
Busmouse, Microsoft, Logitech as suggested by the HOWTO

None of it works.
Any ideas making the little beast operate?
