Hi I'm pretty new to linux since I've used it only for 3 months.I'm running rh8 on two sytems;one of them is a Compaq Presario 700 laptop;kernel 2.4.18.-17.8.0.
My problem is that yesterday,I decided to hook up the laptop
to my lcd monitor and wireles keyboard and mouse,sort of like a poor man's docking station,right?I did that from W2k,I then booted into Linux and Kudzu came up asking to configure those devices,which it did without a problem.The hardware in question are a wireless Logitech keyboard and
optical mouse combo,by the way.
So this morning while in school,I fired up Linux and kudzu came up again since this time nither the keyboard or the mouse were hooked up,and I chose to keep the current configuration so I wouldn't have to do it all over again next time I were home...now the trackpad doesn't work although the keyboard does.(I'm writing this from windoze)I connected another ps2 mouse that I have but that one doesn't work either,so is there any way that I can reconfigure Kudzu and remove that configuration?
Well, I haven't used kudzu for a long time now, but there are two files that might be an interest for you:
also take a look up other files in this directory (/etc/sysconfig)
