setup.mouse needs an update.

Here is the sorted list of mouse types from setup.mouse:
Code:

logi      Some serial Logitech devices 
logibm    Logitech busmouse (mouse card) 
logim     Make serial Logitech behave like msc 
mman      Logitech serial MouseMan and similar devices 
ms        3 button Microsoft compatible serial mouse 
ms3       Microsoft serial Intellimouse 
msc       MouseSystems serial (most 3 button serial mice) 
ncr       A pointing pen (NCR3125) on some laptops 
netmouse  Genius Netmouse on PS/2 port 
pnp       Plug and Play (serial mice that do not work with ms) 
ps2       PS/2 port mouse (most desktops and laptops) 
twid      Twiddler keyboard, by HandyKey Corp 
usb       USB connected mouse 
wacom     Wacom serial graphics tablet
And here is the same list, from "gpm -t help"
Code:

bare      Unadorned ms protocol. Needed with some 2-buttons mice.
bm        Micro$oft busmice and compatible devices.
brw       Fellowes Browser - 4 buttons (and a wheel) (dual protocol?)
cal       Calcomp UltraSlate
calr      Calcomp UltraSlate - relative mode
etouch    EloTouch touch-screens (only button-1 events, by now)
evdev     Linux Event Device
exps2     IntelliMouse Explorer (ps2) - 3 buttons, wheel unused
genitizer "Genitizer" tablet, in relative mode.
gunze     Gunze touch-screens (only button-1 events, by now)
imps2     Microsoft Intellimouse (ps2)-autodetect 2/3 buttons,wheel unused
js        Joystick mouse emulation
logi      Used in some Logitech devices (only serial).
logim     Turn logitech into Mouse-Systems-Compatible.
mm        MM series. Probably an old protocol...
mman      The "MouseMan" and similar devices (3/4 bytes per packet).
ms        The original ms protocol, with a middle-button extension.
ms+       Like 'ms', but allows dragging with the middle button.
ms+lr     'ms+', but you can reset m by pressing lr (see man page).
ms3       Microsoft Intellimouse (serial) - 3 buttons, wheel unused
msc       Mouse-Systems-Compatible (5bytes). Most 3-button mice.
mtouch    MicroTouch touch-screens (only button-1 events, by now)
ncr       Ncr3125pen, found on some laptops
netmouse  Genius NetMouse (ps2) - 2 buttons and 2 buttons 'up'/'down'.
pnp       Plug and pray. New mice may not run with '-t ms'.
ps2       Busmice of the ps/2 series. Most busmice, actually.
summa     Summagraphics or Genius tablet absolute mode(MM-Series)
sun       'msc' protocol, but only 3 bytes per packet.
syn       The "Synaptics" serial TouchPad.
synps2    The "Synaptics" PS/2 TouchPad
twid      Twidddler keyboard
vsxxxaa   The DEC VSXXX-AA/GA serial mouse on DEC workstations.
wacom     Wacom Protocol IV Tablets: Pen+Mouse, relative+absolute mode
wp        Genius WizardPad tablet
In the former are missing the post-2008 devices.

On the other hand, some devices listed in setup.mouse are not (maybe, no more) available through gpm.

Honestly, I have no idea which of these devices can be managed by udev beyond those connected through USB.

Also, auto-detection scanning /proc/bus/usb/devices doesn't work anymore as USBFS is gone from recent kernels.

A suggestion, if it is available:

Rebuild video device driver xf86-video-intel with glamor egl acceleration for extended compatibility where uxa and sna acceleration methods might be problematic.

Could we have a compiled version of the "ifenslave" utility (for Ethernet bonding) from:

/usr/src/linux/Documentation/networking/ifenslave.c

in /sbin ?

Thanks in advance.

As far as I know the source is actually removed in the newer kernels and no longer needed. It might be worth looking at this topic where I had a similar problem that normally needed ifenslave. See: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ow-4175562859/

While I am thinking of it, it might be proactive to have the Intel Gallium drivers i915 and ilo enabled in Mesa. This would avoid issues of having to rebuild Mesa for Intel gallium support to use additional packages like Wine with Nine support.

If I've read it right the gallium drivers do require some additional configuration in xorg.conf to use as the drivers will default to the standard Tungsten drivers.

Don't think that will happen... glamor was removed from the intel driver years ago. Here is the commit. The current intel driver does not have the --enable-glamor option anymore.

P.S. Not sure if a simple revert of the commit would allow the driver to include glamor... Maybe some1 can test that.

If it was removed then it's fine.

Good to know! I needed it on a Slack 14.1 box, so thought I'd request it for -current, but seems it's not needed with later kernels.

gparted_polkit works here, and I see no such errors in the logs or the starting console.

I'll see what rworkman has to say about this, but it strikes me as a risky update.
