Re: usb mouse not recognised in kernel 2.4.22 (continued)

things are getting messy here.

Thanks to everyone that has replied, I greatly appreciate your replies,
however the messages are getting confused.

I have reposted this to try and clear things up a little.

I do not have usb-ohci installed. I am running an Asus laptop with Intel
chipset and using usb-uhci

My lsmod shows:

As you can see only mousedev is using input what have I done wrong??!!

There was a time I actually understood the USB subsystem (two years
ago or so). Now all I do is

- use a stock Debian woody kernel (2.4.18-{k7|686}) in my case)
- apt-get install hotplug

and it all works pretty much by itself. With my USB keyboard and mouse
I see

You don't need usbkdb or usbmouse. For USB mouse and keyboard support you should have:
