Arrow usb mouse freezes w/ hid module in 2.6.x


i'm using a usb logitech mouse with 2.6.1 and the mouse freezes pretty often. i can bring it back with the following commands:

rmmod hid
modprobe hid

here are the relevant modules i have loaded:

Module Size Used by
hid 23296 0
uhci_hcd 29320 0
ehci_hcd 21632 0
usbcore 95316 5 hid,uhci_hcd,ehci_hcd

i've tried kernel 2.6.2 and the problem is much worse. any idea how to fix this?

thanks

hi,

this can be not the correct answer but i think can help....
which protocol - mouse option - are you loading in you XF86Config file???
if you are using "auto" you can have problems with freezing...
I would advice "IMPS/2" ....
I had freezing problems with "auto"...
all modules were correct and i had to wait some 10 s to have my mouse alive in X. ...
after i changed to IMPS/2 the problem was solved...

Regards

slackie

thanks for the reply.

InputDevice Protocol in XF86Config is already set to IMPS/2. i'm thinking maybe this is caused by the preemptible kernel since that was the major change from 2.4 to 2.6, although i haven't tried troubleshooting that.
