    Lost USB support after upgrading to 2.6.11.6 kernel...help


    I used a website to walk through a kernel upgrade...
    everything "seemed" to go as the website described it would...except when I rebooted I now have NO USB funcutionality! My mouse does not work and that bothers me.

    Could anyone help me figure this out?

    Ill do what ever you tell me to do.

    By the way this is a Slackware 10.1 distro, on a HP Pavalion laptop...

    Thanks

    You probably just need to go in and enable USB support in the kernel, and make sure you enable the various mouse related options for USB as well. In the raw config file, they are such settings as:
    Code:
    CONFIG_USB=y
    CONFIG_USB_MOUSE=y

    3 Rules:
    1) "It doesn't work..." is simply not useful information.
    2) Don't cross post!
    3) If you are asking for help, start by telling us your distro/os and version.
