PS2 mouse is not auto detecting in linux 18.104.22.168 kernel
I am working on linux kernel building and customising for our requirement.
All these days we were using 2.6.9EL5 kernel to create our own Bootable kernel. Lately we moved to 22.214.171.124 as SATA CDROM support was not available during booting with the earlier kernel.
Now with the new kernel i have got all the updates i wanted with respect to hardware detection during booting but having an issue with my PS2 mouse not auto detecting while booting. However i can configure the mouse with the popup that comes during booting by selecting the generic PS2 3 button mouse option. With this my mouse works properly. I am wondering is there a way to make the mouse auto detectable.
I have attached one of the Xconfig file that is part of our process, Hope this helps.
