Hi XBITRO,

Please post any & all "InputDevice" sections from your /etc/X11/XF86Config file. Also please post the output from: dmesg|grep -i usb

Cheers!

Edit: you can also try:
Code:
su -
[enter root password]
mouseconfig

I use RH9 with 2.4 kernel

some USB mouse work OK in windows but not in linux. In order to make them work, you may need to change modules between uhci and ohci which may need to recompile kernel. Some people also report that changing XF86config to PS/2 may work as well.

I have a recommendation that SHOULD work. Get a connector and plug that USB mouse to the PS/2 port.
