Woody-No Mouse, Sarge-OK
This problem started after removing devfsd on Sarge to overcome a
conflict between udev and devfs. It just
took a while to realize it as woody is not booted very often. So, I
reinstalled devfsd and recreated the symlink
ln -s /dev/mouse /dev/psaux. Although this hasn't changed anything when
booting Sarge, neither has it restored
the mouse when booting Woody. Gpm and udev are installed and
functioning on Sarge. Gpm and devfsd are
installed, but not functioning on Woody.
Symptoms include no mouse(gpm) on console; have mouse pointer in KDE but
doesn't respond to movement of
mouse but will respont to mouse keys although still can't select any
thing with mouse buttons.
After much Googling on woody, devfsd and symlink /dev/mouse still can't
come up with a solution although there
are many references. Man devfsd didn't help either.
I'm sure there is a simple solution but I can't run it down. Perhaps
one on the list could point me in the right direction.
Thanks for any help,
