please help: mouse weirdness
I just recompiled the kernel & after many, many failures I seem to have one that works and is much more tailored to my requirements. Excellent.
One thing that I can't figure out - that there is no longer a link called /dev/mouse on my system and to get X window up I have to create one to point to /dev/ttyS0 (I got a serial rodent).
After a reboot the link I created was gone - so it seems as though my new kernel is cleaning /dev/mouse. Can this be? & If so, does anybody have any insights into what configuration of kernel could be responsible?
ps. Is it bad form to tell X window to look straight at /dev/ttyS0 for it's mouse info rather than going through /dev/mouse?
