I have a laptop which is running debian (sarge), I have recently upgraded the kernel from 2.4.18 to 2.4.22 to tacke advantage of acpi and now I can't get the mouse to work..
the mouse is detected ok:
Sep 7 23:36:28 zeus kernel: usb.c: USB disconnect on device 00:1d.0-1 address 2 Sep 7 23:36:30 zeus kernel: hub.c: new USB device 00:1d.0-1, assigned address 3 Sep 7 23:36:30 zeus kernel: hiddev0: USB HID v1.10 Mouse [Logitech USB Optical Mouse] on usb1:3.0
however it doesn't work!

using X, gpm from console or what else?

using x, kde3/gnome..

if I boot back to bf24 kernel it works!
kernel 2.4.22 modules are the same (ie usbcore hid usbmouse usb-uhci) as bf24.

You probably need to restart the application that needs to *see* the
newly plugged mouse.
A cleaner solution is to always load usbmouse (use modconf or add
usbmouse to /etc/moudules)
Or you compile usbmouse static into the kernel

modules are loaded (checked in modconf.)
have restarted x several times, no change..
cat /dev/input/mice results in nothing, ie no weird characters being printed to screen - which should happen, but also no device not present message.

have recompiled kernel a few times since orignal emai, no change..!
the really annoying thing is that it was all working perfectly before my hdd died, pity I didn't have my kernel & modules backed up :(
