Re: PS/2 Keyboard and Mice not working (USB is) on X
Do you have /dev/input/mice and /dev/input/event* files? If so, does the 'mice'
file change when you manipulate the mouse (as root, hd /dev/input/mice and see
whether mouse movement causes output), and does one or more of the input files
change when you press keys (hd /dev/input/event1 ; test, then try 2, etc…)
If no to either question, then the issue is at some layer underneath X, the
input event subsystem. If yes, then there is an X configuration issue.
