USB Mouse - USB works, but still nothing
I recently completed (sucessfully) a linux from scratch build. I have subsequently moved on to beyond linux from scratch and have gotten DHCP to work correctly. Now I am working on installing X. One step in this is getting my mouse to work.
USB Logitech 2 button/wheel mouse
Working USB kernel (2.4.22)(usb is enabled and recognized) - built in mousedev and usb hid
The kernel recognizes the mouse (/proc/bus/usb/devices)
The problem is that when I try to make a /dev/input/mice device file, it doesn't do anything when I cat it (the way to test it) - I am following the directions from linux-usb.org and they just don't seem to be working.
On the plus side, when I generate the node and cat it, it doesn't complain, it just doesn't retrun anything. It sits there at a blank line. I tried making the node with another Major/Minor number and when I run cat on it, it says 'no such device' or something of that nature.
So, any ideas of why my mouse would not be sending information up through the device file?
