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..

have you added the Input Device Section to your XF86Config-4 ?
yes! works fine in kernel 2.4.18

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.

this is bad :)

isn't it just!

as another message pointed out the corret module to load is mousedev,
not usbmouse:
you only need
<M>   USB Human Interface Device (full HID) support
[*]     HID input layer support
under *USB support*

and <M> Input core support
<M>   Mouse support
under *Input core support*


PS: don't reply to me directly, I'm already subscribed and reading the
have mousedev installed, usbmouse seems to be sticking in my modules as have done several kernel recompiles and although it appears to have vanished from modconf. if i do lsmod it appears but is unused.

I have done modprobe -r usbmouse & restarted x but does not seem to help.
