Usb + Hid


I reinstalled slack due to an unfortunate formatting accident heh, got the 2.4.20

Anyways, I wanted to know how you set up your USB mouse.

Did you have, input core support? HID layer? (attached to the normal hid thing). the hid one just below the layer in the menu (forget the name, sorry). Obvisouly you had usbcore support. Were they all modulated?

None of my modules load except for a few. modprobe -a \* loads alot more than what was there, say 10 more then what loads off boot.

Answer the first question if your only going to answer to one, it's more pressing.

BTW:cat /dev/input/mice works. So I switched the /dev/mouse for the link and it didn't work for some reason, so I believe I am missing something. So could you post your USB support in the kernel?

i use 'make menuconfig' to configure my to-be
compiled kernel and i have all compiled the
following into the kernel, so i do not have
to load modules for mouse / usb support.

here are my settings for make menuconfig:

input core support ->

input core support
mouse support

usb support ->

support for usb
uhci (intel piix4, via, ...) support
usb human interface device (full hid) support
hid input layer support

character devices -> mice ->

mouse support (not serial and bus mice)


good luck.

I'm using a USB mouse and a P/S2 keyboard with a USB convertot... so basically all my input devices are USB.

Everything works well even with the vmlinuz-2.4.20-ide stock kernel I used before compiling my own.

Anyway, if you're looking to compile your own kernel, then follow neenee's advice. At the uhci section, just choose your chipset manufacturer, it would save some kbs to the overall size of your kernel. Preferable include them directly to the kernel, do not add as modules.

Hope this helps
