I've got a PS2 mouse and a USB mouse (both connected at the same time) and none of the seem to work. My guess is that USB mouse doesn't work since default kernel doesn't have USB support but this is not a problem since I plan to recompile it.

But PS2 mouse should work with GPM. The error I get is that it can't find /dev/mouse. Where is PS2 or USB mouse located and how can I enable it so GPM will work.

Since I've got no /dev/mouse even my X will not start.

I am using 8.1 version.

Thanks for any help...

Change /dev/mouse to /dev/psaux" and give it a shot. Use the "imps/2" protocol.
