    Did you configure USB mouse support in your kernel config? That's an essential thing. Look in Device Drivers->USB Support. Make sure you have HID input layer support either builtin or modularized.

    select all options of USB in the kernel config file.
    Though it tough, it's worth a try.

    Can you post the output of this:

    Code:
    dmesg | grep -i usb
