Mouse wheel "issue" in kernel 2.6


Oddly, I've solved every other problem I've encoutered when upgrading from my 2.4.23 to 2.6 (that is, sound works perfectly now, so does my internet [nforce2]). But, alas, I'm unable to solve this issue.

I'm using a Logitech Optical Wheel (4 button) Mouse. It's part of the Elite MX Duo (keyboard) I got. It works just fine (the wheel, that is) in 2.4.23 using the 'auto' setting in XF86Config. I've tried other settings, Mouseman, Microsoft. Those just result in a crazy mouse cursor (uncontrollable). So I'm using auto right now w/o wheel support.

Any help with this is appreciated. Thanks.

One other "problem" I have (though it's not really limited to 2.6) is that I wanted to create a monolithic kernel, except I wish to have scsi emulation for my cd-rom. So instead of having this as a module, I simply included it into the kernel. It seems this isn't enough as when I attempt to mount the drive, I receive block device errors. When I compile ide-scsi as a module and then modprobe it, followed by a mount, the drive mounts and I can access the data on the cdrom.

So, how does one include the scsi emulation of the cdrom into the kernel *and* still be able to mount the drive? Is there something I need to pass to the kernel through the grub command line?

Thanks again.

saem deal

I have a Razer Boomslang USB and have the same deal...

My XFConfig86 is totally fine I have ran it through about 20 people and no one has an answer. I have even upgraded Xwindows to 4.39 just to see....

still nothing so I contacted XFree86.org to see. the mouse works the kernel works.. I am assuming its an issue with X..

Oh and the hilarious thing... 2.4.22 the mouse works with the USB to ps2 adapter.... but not on 2.6 I have to plug it directly into usb or i get nothing....

Fun Fun....

The mouse NEVER worked as just USB with Windows lol....

Well my mouse works in 2.4.23 with the USB->PS adapter. This does not seem to work in 2.6 properly as while my mouse functions, not all of its functions are available.

Someone please help. I dont like using my keyboard wheel. Not all problems accept it, lol.

Sigh.

Seems the obvious answer eluded me. I tried what Xfree suggested on their website in terms of drivers. I figured I had nothing to lose so I tried the ever-elusive imps/2 protocol.

Guess what. Mouse works perfectly now. Even my 4th button functions. Yay.
