Re: Reconfigure Mouse?

I tried running discover - nothing happened.
It looks like it's going to take less time to reload everything than to figure
out how to reconfigure the mouse.
You'll probably wind up with the same problem. I would strongly
recommend against a rebuild, unless of course you just want the
experience. I suspect you don't have USB support working. Try running
modconf, and add in any modules that look interesting related to mouse
and USB, like usbcore, usbmouse, mousedev, hid, uhci/ohci/ehci host
support (depends on your controller - "lspci -v" and look for type).
And again, I'd suggest installing gpm and getting it working prior to
getting the mouse in X to work; it's a lot easier/quicker to restart gpm
than it is to restart X after every little tweak.
Also, just as a freebie; while in X, you can simulate a mouse with your
number pad (on a 104-type keyboard, not laptops) by pressing
Shift-NumLock to turn it on; then the various outside number keys to
move in that direction; 5 for a click, / to set the 5 to do a left
click, * to set it to do a middle click, - to set it to do a right
click, ins for click-and-hold, del to turn off click-and-hold.
