Lost USB Mouse Device on Debian Unstable
I am trying to get a usb mouse working on Debian Unstable.
It is a microsoft explorer mouse plugged into a usb 2.0 pci card. The pci card works fine since I can use a mass storage device on it just fine, and I am getting the light on the mouse turned on.
I compiled a new 2.4.21 kernel for my debian, but I started with the source from apt-get (already had debian patches applied) and I started with the default debian config file. I only changed a few options to match my processor and enable a few extra drivers. I also turned on usb 2.0 support.
From dmesg, I believe my mouse is recognized. I have the ehci module loaded (for the pci card), and the mousedev and input modules.
At the end of dmsg is a line that starts with:
hiddev0: (Description of my mouse)Bus5:2.0
I believe it was Bus5, I've read usb devices tend to jump around buses.
I installed usbutils, but lsusb lists nothing for me. My /proc/bus/usb directory is completely empty.
I've read that if you know the mouse device you can for example type:
And then wiggle the mouse and get some output. Well, no devices seem to give me output.
So I believe my usbmouse is recognized, but I can't tell which device it is.
If it's something deeper, like a module I forgot to compile and load, I'm more than willing to recompile.
I know I can use the ps/2 adapter, but I've already got the mouse configured on 4 other operating systems (including FreeBSD) and I don't really want to change all those. Also, I'm viewing this as a learning experience.
So mainly I just want to know if my mouse is being recognized, and if it is, which device is it?
Thanks for anything,
