IT appears that unstable with 2.4 and 2.6 kernels are both not setting
up the trackpad correctly to /dev/psaux. So X does not load.
dmesg shows that it is detected and is called something like
serio: i8042 AUX port at 0x60,0x64 irq 12
serio: i8042 KBD port at 0x60,0x64 irq 1
input: Logitech Mouse on isa0060/serio1
If I change /dev/psaux in XF86Config to /dev/ttyS1, X loads fine but
the mouse is still inoperative. I don't see a /dev/mouse
It might be in the /dev/input directory, for example /dev/input/mice. A
quick way to try it is to become root and run
cat /dev/input/mice | hd
cat /dev/input/mouse0 | hd
If you find the right device you should see output scrolling by as soon
as you do something with the trackpad. (CTRL-C to quit this.)
i have had this prblem few weeks ago.
try to edit /etc/modules, and include mosedev and psmouse.
That should fix your problem.
the problem was that is the module isn't loaded, the system can mount
this /etc/modules is mine
belmonte@rutherford:~$ cat /etc/modules
# /etc/modules: kernel modules to load at boot time.
# This file should contain the names of kernel modules that are
# to be loaded at boot time, one per line. Comments begin with
# a "#", and everything on the line after them are ignored.
mousedev <------------ them two are the two you need.
