Exclamation Death mouse after kernel update FC6


This morning I updated my FC6 box to kernel 2.6.19-1.2895, after that my mouse was death without any movement on the screen.

The mouse a standard "Made in China" 2 button with a clickable wheel in the middel. I use this mouse from FC1 and never let me down.

Are there more people having this problem?

If I do "cat /dev/input/mouse0" I belief that this will show if the kernel supports the mouse?

Anyway I get the message that it not excised ....

Here's my xorg.conf
Code:
# /etc/X11/xorg.conf (xorg X Window System server configuration file)
#
# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
# values from the debconf database.
#
# Edit this file with caution, and see the /etc/X11/xorg.conf manual page.
# (Type "man /etc/X11/xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
#
# This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
# if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
# package.
#
# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
# again, run the following command:
#   sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

My device appears to be "/dev/input/mice". (And yes, using 'cat' on the device should result in output on the terminal.)

Funny before (kernel 2.6.18-1.) it was mouse01 and with the new kernel (2.6.19-1) it is mice.

With the new kernel 2.6.19-1.2895 I get no data if do "cat /dev/input/mice", again "cat /dev/input/mouse0" doesn't work like it worked with kernel 2.6.18-1.2869

If I do "cat /dev/input/mouse0" running kernel 2.6.18-1.2869 I can see mouse movement. With kernel 2.6.19-1.2895 "cat /dev/input/mouse0" tells me I have not so sort of file or directory.

I did add

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Configured Mouse"
Driver "mouse"
Option "CorePointer"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "true"
EndSection

to my xorg.conf , but that did not help much

You should run your xorg configurator. Unfortunately, I'm not sure what program on FC 6 that is. On Debian based systems I run 'dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg'.
Make a backup copy of your current xorg.conf, just incase.

After reading around as best I could, I read on a forum that you should run the following as root:
Xorg -configure

Can anyone verify that? (Or provide a better solution?)

Before I start to reconfigurator xorg.conf, I still belief the problem is bigger. Because if I do "cat /dev/input/mice" I get no data/response from the mouse.

It seems that the kernel doesn't see my mouse, I now connected several other mouses, including original Microsoft and Logitech also no responce or output onto the terminal with "cat /dev/input/mice"

People it has no use to ask me if I already found a solution for the Fedora Core 6 mouse kernel problem.

The only way you can help, and maybe speedup the progress, is to report your own experience to the redhat Bugzilla website

****** FEDORA CORE 6 WARNING *******

For the people who experienced PS/2 mouse problems with kernel 2.6.19-1.2895 I can advice not to upgrade to the just released kernel 2.6.19-1.2911 as it doesn't fix the PS/2 mouse problem.

Matter of fact it makes things worse as it removes the only working kernel (2.6.18.2869).
