Well, bootlogd is now enabled, but I can't find an output file. There's no boot in /var/log
. The man says that's the default location, but there's nothing there. I was going to make one, but I can't figure out how... vi won't let me save a new file (or I don't know how, anyway. I haven't bothered to look very hard yet.) Just occured to me, is boot a folder? I can make that easily enough...
That might be moot anyway, I found this in dmesg
input: ImPS/2 Generic Wheel Mouse on isa0060/serio1
Capability LSM initialised
mice: PS/2 mouse device common for all mice
Does that mean my PS/2 mouse is on a serial port?
Also, I rebooted about a million times trying to get the error message, and this is what I got...
Uniform CD-ROM Driver version 3.20
FATAL: module ide-detect not found
If I'm reading this right, the problem isn't with the mouse, it's with the ide-detect or the CD-ROM driver.
So that means I'm back to square one.
If it helps, this is the entry in XF86Config-4:
Identifier "Configured Mouse"
Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
Option "Protocol" "ImPS/2"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "true"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
