debian usb mouse problem Asus Laptop


All you Gurus: I can't work this out! (neither can Google!)

My USB mouse don't work.

Kernel is bf2.4 unstable
Kernel has been compiled for USB mouse.
XFree86 is: 4.2.1

dmesg shows:
usb.c: registered new driver hiddev
usb.c: registered new driver hid
hid-core.c: v1.8 Andreas Gal, Vojtech Pavlik <vojtech@suse.cz>
hid-core.c: USB HID support drivers
usb.c: registered new driver usb_mouse
usbmouse.c: v1.6:USB HID Boot Protocol mouse driver
apm: BIOS version 1.2 Flags 0x03 (Driver version 1.16)
hub.c: USB new device connect on bus1/1, assigned device number 2
input0: USB HID v1.10 Mouse [Logitech Logitech] on usb1:2.0
kjournald starting. Commit interval 5 seconds
EXT3 FS 2.4-0.9.17, 10 Jan 2002 on ide0(3,9), internal journal
EXT3-fs: mounted filesystem with ordered data mode.
eth0: Setting 100mbps full-duplex based on auto-negotiated partner ability 45e1.

XFree86.0.log shows:
(**) Option "Protocol" "PS/2"
(**) Mouse0: Protocol: "PS/2"
(**) Option "CorePointer"
(**) Mouse0: Core Pointer
(**) Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
(**) Option "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
(**) Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
(**) Mouse0: ZAxisMapping: buttons 4 and 5
(**) Mouse0: Buttons: 5
(**) Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
(**) USB Mice: Protocol: "IMPS/2"
(**) Option "SendCoreEvents"
(**) USB Mice: always reports core events
(**) Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
(EE) xf86OpenSerial: Cannot open device /dev/input/mice
No such device.
(EE) USB Mice: cannot open input device
(EE) PreInit failed for input device "USB Mice"
(II) UnloadModule: "mouse"
(II) Keyboard "Keyboard0" handled by legacy driver
(II) XINPUT: Adding extended input device "Mouse0" (type: MOUSE)

but lsmod shows:
Module Size Used by Not tainted
soundcore 3236 0 (autoclean)
radeon 92472 0
ds 6624 2
i82365 22416 2
pcmcia_core 41408 0 [ds i82365]
irtty 7456 2 (autoclean)
irda 138796 1 (autoclean) [irtty]
nls_cp437 4384 4 (autoclean)
cpuid 1184 0 (unused)
apm 9148 2
usbmouse 1760 0 (unused)
hid 18816 0 (unused)
orinoco 29568 0 (unused)
hermes 3296 0 [orinoco]
ieee1394 23528 0 (unused)
keybdev 1664 0 (unused)
usbkbd 2848 0 (unused)
input 3072 0 [usbmouse hid keybdev usbkbd]
usb-uhci 20708 0 (unused)
usbcore 48032 0 [usbmouse hid usbkbd usb-uhci]

So I used usbmouse as driver:
Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "USB Mice"
Driver "usbmouse"
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
# Option "Buttons" "5"

EndSection

and got this:
(**) Option "Protocol" "PS/2"
(**) Mouse0: Protocol: "PS/2"
(**) Option "CorePointer"
(**) Mouse0: Core Pointer
(**) Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
(**) Option "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
(**) Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
(**) Mouse0: ZAxisMapping: buttons 4 and 5
(**) Mouse0: Buttons: 5
(EE) No Input driver matching `usbmouse'
(II) Keyboard "Keyboard0" handled by legacy driver
(II) XINPUT: Adding extended input device "Mouse0" (type: MOUSE)

I tried: /etc/init.d/gpm stop as suggested here:
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...bian+usb+mouse
which returned:
bash: /etc/init.d/gpm: no such file or directory

I also tried: mknod --mode=600 /dev/input/mice c 13 63 (same post) returned /dev/input/mice: file exists...


Where do I go from here?

Cheers
