Re: Mouse issues with updated 2.6.3 kernel via up2date and more

I too get the mouse problems with the start of the X server with the updated

in the config file but that doesn't work for me.

The confusing thing is that you need to make a symlink from "/dev/mouse" to "/dev/input/mice".

My symlink still is set to the below. So what you did with changing "/dev/psaux" to "/dev/mouse" was to in short, change the reference from pointing to the actual device driver "/dev/psaux" into pointing to the symlink for "/dev/psaux"

 ls -la /dev/mouse
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root 5 Jan 12 18:08 /dev/mouse -> psaux

Basically, you went from the device to a symlink pointing to the same device. Of course, this will crash the same way.

Tried quite a few things
there but they were all very uneducated guesses.

Try changing the first of the two headings to point to "/dev/input/mice" also. Either that, or edit the symlink for "/dev/mouse" to point to "/dev/input/mice"

Also, I have an HP psc 750xi scanner/copier/printer all in one.  Printing
works fine (just don't try to print in GIMP).  But the scanner doesn't work.

I just checked out my scanner and it does not work either. It worked during tests for the 2.4 kernel and Fedora 1. I rarely use it, but it is not detected now. I have a "Scanjet 2100C" flatbed scanner that "just worked", without any configuration, in FC1 with the 2.4 kernel.

 On RH9, I installed an HP sponsored driver that I found on sourceforge
(http://hpoj.sourceforge.net/download.shtml) and it worked fine.  Is it that
2.6 hasn't incorporated the driver or hardware detection didn't configure
it?  To be fair, the driver is at a .9.1 status.  Anyone know?
