usb keyboard and mouse
I have installed gentoo on a second system, one that has both usb keyboard and mouse. I have tried getting usb to work on both machines but because I can't, I've come to the conclusion I'm just plain dumb. :o
I have checked various threads on the issue and nothing seems to work for me. I'm sure that I have the kernel config right. I've checked out http://www.linux-usb.org/USB-guide/x194.html as well but I'm not having much luck at all.
If anyone could point me in the right direction I would be reallu greatful. Just annoying because the gentoo live cd works fine. Detects kb and mouse.
which in kernel usb driver are you using? does anything show up in dmesg when you plug a usb device in?
im on gentoo!!
Well im on gentoo right now!
i dont have a usb keyboard,

in you xconfig when you umm........edit it make sure you have this!!!
Option "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice" <------------THIS!!! to make the mouse wor

im on Gentoo like i said if you need help i can help you!!
go to my site im always there checking my forums for people that need help!
Sorry, I haven't even got xfree installed yet :)
I'm running Gentoo-Sources kernel 2.4.20 r8. I have HID support compiled in. I have keyboard and mouse in the input devices. I know USB works because I have windblows on the other partition. I haven't done a dmesg because I can't login. They keyboard is non-responsive. So looks like I'm gonna have to test with another keyboard, huh?
I'm just on the live CD for gentoo as a test and when I do dmesg | grep "usb" I can see that it detects both my keyboard and mouse. Input 0 for kb and input 1 for mouse. Even cooler is that I can access my digi cam through the live disc as I added support for SCSI and usb-storage device.
This is bum. I need it to work for me :(
Okay, using another keyboard, I echoed dmesg to a text file and this is the result:
