mouse - mind of its own


well, i installed a new kernel 2.4.22 => 2.6.5
and am having quite some difficult with the mouse. Its a ps/2 mouse and the settings in X11Config-4 are correct.


Identifier "Mouse1"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "imps/2"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"
Option "Buttons" "3"

I initially tried using a optical mouse, thinking that may have been the problem, but using a normal ps/2 wheel mouse had the same effect.

What effect? well, the mouse moves by itself, seems to move my menu bars, copies, pastes, deletes, you name it, does it all, occasionally goes missing for a few second, and eventually ends up top left corner of the screen.

i tried stopping gpm, makes it worse. It gets really bad when the pc is doing a lot of work,
now, i printed dmesg, and get two messages, one i know directly is to do with the mouse and another, most likely is...

atkbd.c: Unknown key released (translated set 2, code 0x7a on isa0060/serio0).
atkbd.c: This is an XFree86 bug. It shouldn't access hardware directly.
atkbd.c: Unknown key released (translated set 2, code 0x7a on isa0060/serio0).
atkbd.c: This is an XFree86 bug. It shouldn't access hardware directly.
psmouse.c: Wheel Mouse at isa0060/serio1/input0 lost synchronization, throwing 1 bytes away.
psmouse.c: Wheel Mouse at isa0060/serio1/input0 lost synchronization, throwing 2 bytes away.

and yes, i see that it says Xfree86 bug, Ive looked in the mailing lists, cant find any help, searched google, still no results explaining how to resolve this issue.

i also get the feeling theres conflicts with the keyboard if thats any help. As my kb once got locked (no idea how) and the mouse trouble wasnt as bad as it usually is.

I have another problem... bttv, although my graphics card fails to install (another massive problem)
bttv0: skipped frame. no signal? high irq latency? [main=5f18000,o_vbi=5f18018,o_field=3f90000,rc=3f9001c]
bttv0: skipped frame. no signal? high irq latency? [main=5f18000,o_vbi=5f18018,o_field=3e57000,rc=3e5701c]

when running tvtime... the channel goes black for a while....until i change channel and back again, and it comes back again....

I would really appreciate the help
Thank you

You may have the wrong mouse selected,I have seen some very strange
results with this. When you set up the type of mouse you may have the option to test it and go back if it does not work in the test.You don't say
which flavour of Linux you are running?
