|Grrr... I'm struggling with the mouse device on the webpal. I have compiled the PS/2 mouse driver into the kernel, but there was no mention of any mice in the boot messages. I have then enabled the input core support, with the side effect that I have the IR keyboard working now - which is nice, but I'd rather have the mouse working instead. |
In the latest kernel I have compiled (the one with PS/2 mouse support and input core support, including for mice) there is a "mice: PS/2 device common for all mice" boot message, but it doesn't actually work. There's also no mention of a mouse device anywhere else (/proc/interrupts etc). If I try to use gpm, it dies immediately complaining that /dev/psaux doesn't exist. Well I made sure that /dev/psaux is there and has the right permissions, but it still cannot be used (if I try to read from it I get the same message back: device /dev/psaux doesn't exist). What am I missing?
