    PS/2 mouse wont work after 2.4.33->2.6.18 upgrade


    I recently upgraded my kernel from 2.4 to 2.6 and my PS/2 mouse only works when I boot the 2.4 kernel. For some reason it doesnt work on 2.6 even though it loads the drivers and i can start KDE. Anyone knows what's wrong?

    Ho did you upgrade your kernel, but in any case the kernel 2.6 compatible with udev and not with hotplug so go as a root into the directory /etc/rc.d/
    and do the following
    chmod -x rc.hotplug
    chmod +x rc.udev
    i think this should work for you

    hope this help.
