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.

This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

....during boot/post... maybe the moment it hits the linux kernel. idk, but theres not even any light coming from my USB mouse bar the occassional brief flash early on when i power up my PC. (same deal with my wacom graphics tablet)
i'm sure i had this problem before and fixed it, but its been days of trying to solve this, navigating with the keyboard, and so i had to ask....
(please and thnx)
this is on SuSE 9.2 pro (if that helps) and most equip in the machine is around 4-5 years old.
i havn't tried the obvious yet, because i dont know what it is, so feel free to chip in with anything you think i might have already tried.
firstly, during your boot up, what should occur if you have just newly attached this new USB mouse is a system hardware recognition message (from kuzuu or something) that asks for a new hardware check and to press a key within 5 seconds. Have you ever gotten such a message ever? What kernel version do you use (type uname -r in console). If you would like to check if you have usb support, you can do this two ways: either switch to root using su in the console and then type in "modprobe usb-interface" or "modprobe usb-uhci" or check the /etc/modules.conf file.
ohci. i saw "OHCI" when i rebooted to see if those three had any effect. none of them told me they didnt, so i asumed something happened upon all three. what exactly was that though? my mouse still doesn't like linux though. nxt step?
