Now that I've got my linux-3.12 system up and running, and the ethernet
card running, I'm running into another problem:
The mouse is not detected.
The mouse (an older Microsoft Intellimouse USB model) works fine with
the mouse-based BIOS and with my Fedora installation, so there's
probably something wrong with my configuration. When I start X, the
mouse does not light up, which means it's not getting USB power, so it's
apparently not getting detected.
In the console window, I've tried running the "mouse-test" program from
GPM, but it finds no mouse.
When linux comes up, a message appears: "Starting GPM console mouse
After I login as root, and try "ps -ef | grep -i gpm" I see no
indication that the GPM daemon is running.
I followed the LFS book to set things up and /etc/sysconfig/mouse has this:
I've also tried the line "MDEVICE="/dev/input/mice"
Any ideas as to where I should start looking to solve this?
