I have Debian Sid running on my machine.I had earlier updated kernel 2.2.20 to 2.4.24 through apt without any problems.
however this time when i installed the 2.6.3 kernel image...i am having problems running X.
My mouse device is listed as /dev/psaux.the relevant portion onf XF86Config-4 is here:
#Option "Protocol" "PS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
Option "Name" "Autodetection"
Option "Protocol" "imps/2"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
This setup works perfect for 2.4.24 but when i booted into 2.6.3 and hit startx i get a fatal error saying that Mouse1 could not be started(i had hgot a similar message when i initially installed Debian but then i had changed the device to /dev/psaux and X worked like a charm).
However this time i do not know what to do.
any suggestions?Is this due to the /sys directory that 2.6.3 creates?I would really like to get some help on this.
I also had another question....My current Debian install is on the second hard drive of my machine.This HD has a ext2 FS and i would like to shift this to either a EXT3 FS or ReiserFS.My first hard drive is blank so i was wondering that if i make an appropriate FS on my first HD and copy/move all the data and then update fstab and lilo.conf...then things should work.am i right in assuming this or will there be more things needed to be done before i can accomplish such a task.
also could someone tell me a command to test the data tranfer/access speed between the two HD's and within the same HD too.
