USB Devices not working :(
 
Hey there,
just installed Slackware 9.0, and im pretty happy with that (im a newbie, tho)

Im working on a Gericom Per4mance Radeon Notebook with following stats:

P4 2,53ghz
512mb RAM
Radeon Mobility 9000
and so on .... dont think the rest is important ;)

After fighting with the graphics i cant get my mouse working - i got 4 USB slots, but none of them work - i think Linux is in trouble with the USB bus (or so).
It works fine with RH9, even if i got an error message on boot ...

Any infos missing? Im a noob, so i dont know how to fetch the error ;(

Help me please!! Huge thanx ...

First of all, check whether any USB modules
have been loaded ...
lsmod

What type of USB has that box got?
1.1 or 2?

Cheers,
Tink

Hey there,
thanx for an answer :D

lsmod
shows me this:

bash-2.05b# lsmod

Mhm, afaik they are USB 2!

Do you know where the bootlog is located? That thing shows me dozens of errors ...

Tinkster 04-23-2003 03:52 PM

Just type
dmesg

Or, if that is too much recent output (some
errors keep repeating :}) look in /var/log
files of interest would be
messages
syslog
debug

If it's USB 2, try unloading ohci
modprobe -r usb-ohci
and loading ehci
modprobe ehci-hcd


Cheers,
Tink

Wahoow, good news!

this is what dmesg | grep usb showed me (before doing anything)

i like the last msg - Logitech USB-PS/2 Optical Mouse on usb2:4.0 - looks good! Seems as if USB works (changing the USB slots changes dmesg's output) !!

The only question is: how can i activate the mouse without reinstalling?

--- edit ----

I think usb-ohci works - i can load it without any error msgs; ehci-hcd keeps telling me this (i think thats the same msg i got while booting)

bash-2.05b# modprobe ehci-hcd
/lib/modules/2.4.20/kernel/drivers/usb/hcd/ehci-hcd.o.gz: init_module: No such device
/lib/modules/2.4.20/kernel/drivers/usb/hcd/ehci-hcd.o.gz: Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg

You might have to do a search on
USB and mouse here .... I don't
use any usb rodents but recall that
people had to symlink something
from either /dev/input or /dev/usb
to /dev/mouse to get their USB mice
to work...


Cheers,
Tink

Yeah, got it! Everything works fine now - the touchpad and the USB mouse at the same time!

Heres a part of my XF86Config :

------------ start ----------------

Section "InputDevice"
Driver "mouse"
Identifier "Mouse1"
Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
Option "Protocol" "ps/2"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
Driver "mouse"
Identifier "Mouse2]"
Option "ButtonNumber" "5"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "Name" "AutoDetected"
Option "Protocol" "imps/2"
Option "Vendor" "AutoDetected"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
EndSection

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Simple Layout"
InputDevice "Keyboard1" "CoreKeyboard"
InputDevice "Mouse1" "CorePointer"
InputDevice "Mouse2" "SendCoreEvents"
Screen "Screen 1"
EndSection

--------- end -------------

mouse1 is the touchbad; mouse2 the usb mouse. Dont forget to add
InputDevice "Mouse2" "SendCoreEvents"
to the Section ServerLayout! This means that the Touchpad is the Core Device (CorePointer) and the USB-Mouse kinda support-mouse - it moves the same Pointer! (SendCoreEvents)


Huge thanx Tinkster - you safed my hd from another format :D

Glad I could throw you a few pointers mate,
pleased to see you're all happy now :}


Cheers, and God bless,
