Question Kernel Compiling Issue -> USB Mouse

Hello, I have compiled 2.4.18 kernel to mandrake 8.1. It works ok, but I have one problem. My MS intellimouse USB does not work in X or X closed. It worked fine with the original kernel but not my new one.

What could be the problem? Some modules I would need to install to the kernel?

Aldo when I boot the new kernel it says something like this: "Unknown bridge resource 0: Attempting Transparent"

FInally the Mandrake Logo during bootup has a frown face next to it and the colours are off.

Any help would be great, thanks.

You should probably go back through you kernal and try different settings. Or it may be you xf86config file for x.

First, make sure your /etc/X11/XF86Config file says ImPS/2 for pointer device protocol, and /dev/input/mouse for device. If not, change em and there yuh should be, if not, go backinto the kernel config and make sure you built all of the HID/USB support into the kernel or made them modules or you won't have anything driving it. For an MS mouse, you need to have USB support enabled or as a module, the 1st UHCI enabled or module, and Full HID support enable or module. If they are compiled as modules, you'll need to have them load at startup, anything you enabled marked with a simple Yes or * will go automatically. Try doing this from the console;

/sbin/modprobe usb-uhci
/sbin/modprobe hid
/sbin/modprobe mousedev

If any of those give you an error like no module found, you have a good idea of where to start.
