Sorry for this lengthy message but I have a really big problem here. I installed Redhat 8.0 on my Toshiba Satellite 1115-S103 laptop using the procedure described at
I've done everything including the "Getting dual mice to work" part. However, I couldn't make my Intellipoint USB mouse work (everything else works fine). My mouse is recognized by the kernel, /proc/bus/usb/devices looks ok.
I tried "gpm -R -m /dev/psaux -t ps2 -M -m /dev/input/mice -t imps2" in console mode but only my touchpad woke up (my touchpad is /dev/psaux I tried "cat /dev/psaux"). "cat /dev/input/mice" doesn't do anything (I don't get random chars on the screen when I move the mouse). Any other device such as /dev/input/mouseXX or /dev/usb/hiddevXX doesn't work (I get the "No such device" message). This is some additional info about my system:
------The following modules are loaded: mousedev, input, usbcore, uhci, hid. Here is what lsmod gives:
mousedev 5524 1
keybdev 2976 0 (unused)
input 5920 0 [mousedev keybdev]
hid 11796 0 (unused)
uhci 29584 0 (unused)
usbcore 77024 1 [hid uhci]
------In /proc/bus/usb/ I have the files "drivers" and "devices" and they seem ok.
------This is how modules.conf looks like:
alias parport_lowlevel parport_pc
alias eth0 8139too
alias sound-slot-0 i810_audio
post-install sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -L >/dev/null 2>&1
pre-remove sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -S >/dev/null 2>&1 |
alias usb-controller uhci
I also tried to put "alias char-major-13 mousedev" in it but didn't work.
------ "ls /dev/input/mice -l" gives:
crw------- 1 root root 13, 63 Aug 30 2002 /dev/input/mice
------ mouseconfig uses /dev/input/mice when it modifies the conf files (such as etc/X11/XF86Config-4 and /etc/sysconfig/mouse).
Can anyone help me?
