Hardware: NEC Versa M300 Laptop

Release: Woody, upgraded to Testing.

2.6.0 stable source from www.kernel.org

.config and kern.log attached.

Compiled 'the Debian way', using make-kpkg.

Stock 2.2.5 works normally.
kernel-image-2.4.22-1-686 works normally. (Installed via apt-get)

The compiled 2.6.0 kernel boots correctly, but when X starts I have no
keyboard or mouse. If I try booting with linux single, I have no
keyboard or mouse.

Any suggestions?

Looking at your kern.log it looks like a bug... Specifically the second line below:

Dec 28 21:46:37 debian-laptop kernel: mice: PS/2 mouse device common for all mice Dec 28 21:46:37 debian-laptop kernel: i8042.c: Can't read CTR while initializing i8042.

Take a look at this:

Search for 'Input Layer' - it mentions something about modifying the source slightly to enable debug output, which may either help you, or someone else.

Before all that you might want to try turning ACPI and other features off at boot time (I think the option for ACPI is something like 'acpi=off' at the kernel boot prompt)

I hope that this helps at least a little.

Best regards,
