Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.

since days i struggle with fedora 1 (and suse 9.0, and redhat 9.0) to install on a compaq proliant - nearly everything works fine -
except the mouse. as the mouse is not recognized at all and i cannot diagnose my bios :-((( i installed a pci-usb-card, where i connected ps/2 - > usb converter. this device is recognized.
But now. there is a mouse connected, which just runs strange (just from the middle to the right, upper side if i move).
I already tried booting with the option pci-biosirq which caused the mentionned effect...but better as before...where the mouse din't work at all.
usb-uhci.c: $Revision: 1.275 $ time 15:50:32 Oct 29 2003
usb-uhci.c: High bandwidth mode enabled
PCI: No IRQ known for interrupt pin D of device 00:14.2.
usb-uhci.c: found UHCI device with no IRQ assigned. check BIOS settings!
usb-uhci.c: v1.275:USB Universal Host Controller Interface driver
this is a short cut of my dmesg from usb. you can see, that there is an irq-problem.
i will try something like booting with noapic or pci-noacpi or acpi=off...i hope somebody else has a better idea that really helps me...

I am not sure if you really "want" a USB mouse, or are trying to find some way to get a mouse running on a proliant 1600. If it is t he latter, then I found a solution that works for me with a Proliant 1600 and an 1850R...
