View Full Version : Mouse problem with kernel 2.4 but not with 2.6

My Microsoft Wireless USB mouse won't work with kernel 2.4, but interestingly enough it works with kernel 2.6. I am using Knoppix 3.4 hard drive install. I've tried the following console commands, to no avail:

modprobe -r usbmouse
modprobe hid

Has this happened to anyone else before? The main reason I can't use kernel 2.6 is because I can't run at a resolution higher than 640x480 (still trying to work that problem out). Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

is the problem with 2.6 or with 2.4? (Text vs. headline).

modprobe uhci-hcd
modprobe ehci-hcd
modprobe ohci-hcd

Whoops that is a typo in the subject. I changed it to reflect the true nature of my problem: the mouse works in kernel 2.6 but not in kernel 2.4.

I suppose it isn't as important anymore since I finally got my video card to work in 1024x768 while using kernel 2.6. Thanks for the help, though.
