I have a USB mouse plugged into my laptop, kernel is configured as follows:
[root at sj116p204 linux]# egrep 'USB|MOUSE' .config | egrep '^[^#]'
I used to use the USB-UHCI driver (CONFIG_USB_UHCI) but that seems to be broken
in 2.4.20-pre5. At least it made my mouse jumpy and such...
Anyway, the mouse actually works now, but the scroll wheel doesn't work. With
the old driver, I have:
Identifier "USB Mice"
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Buttons" "5"
in my XF86Config-4 file, but /dev/input/mice doesn't seem to be a valid device
any longer... At least I can't 'cat' it now which I used to be able to.
