Question Problems with mouse in Mandrake 9.1, modprobe: can't locate module serial


First sorry for my English, I speak Spanish.

I got a problem using mandrake 9.1 (I think the problem comes
in the installation process)
I don't know what exactly happens but is really strange.

I installed it 3 times, while installing/configuring the mouse works perfect (std wheel mouse) and then when finish installation and restart and enter KDE (before login too) the mouse doesn't works. When I run harddrake2 manually (link in KDE menu doesn't works too, redirects to logdrake!! [??]) then it launchs mousedrake and says "modprobe: can't locate module serial".
Then I enter mousedrake, select the mouse, ok, but when I exit same modprobe error and nothing changes.
Seems symbolic links are OK, I mean /dev/mouse points to psaux and psaux points to /misc/psaux
Anyway when I enter mousedrake it shows standard serial mouse on ttyS0 (where is this config stored??)

The strange thing is, when I installed for first time, same problem, the second time the mouse works ok but the system runs really slow (awful), I installed some fonts, and then like 10 minutes to load kde, and then 10 minutes more to finish loading kde.....
And for ex. to load a console waiting 5 minutes..... I can't explain myself why.

Then I reinstall for 3rd time, runs fast, everything ok now but the mouse doesn't works, and the network goes up (3c509 isa) configured ok aparently but I can't connect to local network. (Even ping doesn't responds).

Any help really appreciated.
thanks in advance

regards,
Jarkor

Hi zetsui.........

Are you experiencing problems with the mouse too or
only eth1 ? eth0 works well for you?

Also maybe if you want to tell me what kind of network card you have, I'm using a 3com 3c509B ISA only as eth0. I also try to configure manually with ifconfig and add route and that stuff but the same....I think too is a kernel problem, but I don't know where because I don't have so much experience in this graphical distros, I use linux mainly for servers/gateways.....

Well....I'm still waiting if anyone can help in some way.......
tnx

adios :-))

I have a netgear ma401 it says it cant probe module eth1(my eth0 is a built-in ethernet jack) The cardmgnr probes my card as orinoco_cs, i still have no idea how to fix the problem but i have read about it, and its always with the kernel, but what i dont get is it was working fine
