Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

it built clean and boots fine I just can not get mouse in console even
default slack 11.0 kernel no issues
just curious if anyone ran into this issue upgrading kernels?
I checked the kernel forum and also searched this forum but didn't
see any reports of ps2 problem with 2.6.20 so thought I'd ask
box is an old crate p200 192 megs of ram and ps2 mouse and xt keyboard ( I use an xt to ps2) adapter to my kvm so no keyboard issues I can report. its not an X config problem as have lack of mouse before that
and yes have ran the slack install scripts to redo the mouse configs still no luck
This is always my first sign when I botched the kernel module installation. If you are still having trouble, and haven't done so allready, make sure the psmouse module is loaded when you run 'lsmod'. If not, check your kernel instalation.
sorry yes its the first thing i tried. and no lsmod remains empty
previous kernel build I had left my nic as a module this time I built it in
so no modules and rc.udev is executable and restated and reloaded a few times no change.
If lsmod shows up as empty, i thnk you must have forgotten to install the kernel-modules package on to your system.
Pop in the installation dvd, mount it, "cd" to the dvd location, and type "pkgtool" (you should be root). This will bring up a screen from which you can choose what you want to install. Check for something like kernel-modules and install it. I think that would take care of your problem.(Be careful though, I think you should stay away from installing the kernel headers.)
but only with 2.6.20 and not with stock 11 kernal 2.4? thats what puzzles me its like some odd hardware issue with my box since 2.6.18 before that i could do 2.6.xx and no mouse issues I wrote it off till now just more playing around trying to figure out whats what.
