Mouse polling rates

I was wondering if anyone here knew how to alter mouse polling rates. I'm currently at 125hz with a Razer Diamondback. I'd like to achieve at least 500hz. I appreciate your time.

dunno if this helps

trying to solve some mouse trouble myself, i ran into this :

> > Mouse section in /etc/X11/XF86Config-4:
> > Section "InputDevice"
> > Identifier "Mouse0"
> > Driver "mouse"
> > Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
> > Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"

> > Option "Device" "/dev/gpmdata"
> > Option "SampleRate" "60"
> > Option "BaudRate" "1200"
> > EndSection

i guess it's maybe the samplerate you were looking for?
the rest will obviously not apply to your coniguration
