Exclamation Mouse not working on Damn Small Linux | Mouse: Omega Optical Mouse (16c Gaming Mouse)


Welcome!
I have a 900MB USB, and of its small storage room, i don't use it.
Today i wanted to do something with it and really use it for something.
-----------------Some time later...-------------
I tested the Disc with the DS Linux on my main computer, and on a VM.
But, on the computer and VM, the mouse wasn't moving. I tried searching for solutions, and i didn't found anything. I'm not a so big expert in Linux, i know some basic commands, but i'm not so good to troubleshoot a mouse on a so limited-features Linux.

Ask me if you need some more information, any help is appreciated!

Not sure why the mouse wasn't working when using DSL as a guest in a VM. With a VM the host provides a generic virtual mouse device to the guest, so as long as the host supports the pointing device I would expect it to work in guest as well.

Input devices can be enumerated via
Code:
xinput
Code:
cat /proc/bus/input/devices
If the mouse is not identified with the above (when running DSL natively) then it is likely the underlying kernel support is not there.
