New Install-new problem
i've just installed Slackware 12 on my friends computer and here is the problem:
He has a Pleomax SCM-9000 Wireless Laser Mouse, that is not detected\
during setup, but it was detected and it was running with no problem when i booted the slack DVD with
boot: hugesmp.s root=/dev/sda2 rdinitd= ro
I had to boot with the CD because it had some problem with LILI
which i fixed. I donwloaded and installed kernel 188.8.131.52 /using config file from slackware-current/
but still nothing:
dmesg | grep mouse input: Macintosh mouse button emulation as /devices/virtual/input/input0 mice: PS/2 mouse device common for all mice
dmesg | grep usb usbcore: registered new interface driver usbfs usbcore: registered new interface driver hub usbcore: registered new interface driver usb usbmon: debugfs is not available usbcore: registered new interface driver usb-starage usbcore: registered new interface driver hiddev usbcore: registered new intreface driver usbhid drivers/hid/usbhid/hid-core.c: V2.6: USB HID Core driver
it gave me the same, BUT it had a few extra rows, one of them
was something like "usb samsung reciever...."
What am i missing?
EDIT: could it be from turnnig acpi=off?
i have this in lilo.conf to run my slack: append="failsafe acpi=off irqpoll"
if i disable some of thouse either i dont see anything but mu slack loads, or i see, but it crashes...
Here is the solution:
It apperas that acpi powers off the usb... go figure
in BIOS in Power menu
ACPI Suspend Type it was S1(POS)&S3(STR)
i put in S1(POS)
then removed the acpi=off from lilo.conf, and now the mouse is working in boot time.
Sorry for the previous post
