    Question New Install-new problem


    Hi all,
    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 option:
    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 2.6.23.12 /using config file from slackware-current/
    but still nothing:
    Code:
     dmesg | grep mouse
    input: Macintosh mouse button emulation as /devices/virtual/input/input0
    mice: PS/2 mouse device common for all mice
    and
    Code:
    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
    When i did dmesg | grep usb when it was booted with cd kernel
    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?

    reguards
    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...

    Thumbs up Solved!!

    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
