Problems with USB mouse in Gentoo
I installed Gentoo a while ago on my laptop (nx9105), and I have just one unresolved problem left.
I can't get my USB mouse to work properly. It lights up when I start Gentoo but I can't get it to work in X (or console for that matter). I had the same problem om my stationary computer, but it worked with a PS/2 mouse on it. Since I don't have any PS/2 ports on the laptop I have to get this resolved. The USB controller gets recognized properly. I heard that it might be because the mouse doesn't support USB 2.0, but since I don't have any products using 2.0 I can't see if that's true. Using "cat /dev/input/mice" does not do anything. No matter how much I move the mouse the command just hangs there until I cancel it.
I _REALLY_ need help here. I have tried to find a sollution to this problem for several days now, but noone seems to know.
