in your last message you say:
"All you have to do is plug in the serial mouse into one of those ports
and try the mouse config again...."
which "mouse config" is that????
is it dpkg-reconfigure ????
dpkg-reconfigure xserver-svga sez svga isnt installed... but it is
according to XF86config.
or are you refering to just changing the /dev/mouse symlink to point to
/dev/ttyS0 ??? i just tried that and no go... also tried XF86config
both ways and changing protocal from MouseSystems to Logitech,
and trying both /dev/mouse -> /dev/ttyS1 and /dev/ttyS1.
dmallery@alfie:~$ ll /dev/mouse
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 Feb 20 10:42 /dev/mouse ->
/etc/serial.conf is just as you said.
now the mouse i am using is a ps/2 mouse plugged into a serial converter
plug. is there a problem there?
so the kernel as shipped should accept a serial mouse... i don't need
any module incantations?
re: my eth0 problem. i kn longer believe it to be mechanical. i found
*many* references to a tulip problem with the miatas in a google search.
question: if i want to plug in a 3c905 and use it as eth1, is there
anything i need to do? there must be an ifconfig needed.
and is there any way of stopping the infernal eth0: error messages that
splash over any tty logged in until the thing begins to work. all errors
on eth0: are on the Rx side. is there any way of shutting the eht0:
interface down permanently? i have been able to 'ifconfig eth0 down' with
what a mess. thanks
