USB mouse problem

Hi folks,
I am using RedHat 8.0 on my Toshiba laptop. I have installed the new kernel and my USB mouse is not working in that new setting. Although it's working fine in previous kernel.
I have tried to use "mouseconfig" and also edited the "XF86Config" file to reflect the changes, but still the mouse is not working.
Someone plz help me out

Whe you say "the new kernel" I assume you mean you compiled one yourself? If the mouse isn't working, it's because you didn't enable the right options in the kernel when you compiled it. Read the USB How-To at The Linux Documentation Project. It's straightforward, and has a specific section on setting up a USB mouse, and what kernel options to select.
