[SOLVED] Mouse serial problems
« on: December 09, 2007, 07:23:24 am »

I am trying to resurrect an old K6-2 with 450 mhz, for my work in general distro runs very well considering the antiquity of the jar, the only problem that I have empelotado, and that I could not solve, is the use of the mouse serial, that is not known, I do not appear pointer. I have done everything said San Google but no case, does not want to install a braquet PS-2.Agradeceria any help in that regard, because I get to use VL, it would be my third PC with distro ..

Salu2     ??? ??? ??? ???

You need to edit the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf. Find the stanza "InputDevice" and it should look like this:

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier  "Mouse0"
Driver      "mouse"
Option      "Protocol" "Microsoft"
Option      "Device" "/dev/ttyS0"
Option      "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
EndSection

That should work for you...

Then that probably suggests you did not enable the serial service when you installed VL. do this:

1) dmesg | grep serial

you should see something like this:

serial8250: ttyS0 at I/O 0x3f8 (irq = 4) is a 16550A
serial8250: ttyS1 at I/O 0x2f8 (irq = 3) is a 16550A

that means the kernel sees your serial ports and they are probably functioning from a hardware perspective.

2) ls -al /etc/rc.d

you should see this:

-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 2895 2006-10-18 23:38 /etc/rc.d/rc.serial*

If there are no "x"'s then you have not enable the serial service and you need to go to VASM, SUPER, HARDWARE, HWSET and enable serial.
