Hi there people. I am running into serious problems trying to get my mouse to even move with Slackware 11. So far, i haven't been able to move the mouse. It just sits in the middle of the screen. I thought that once i got the nvidia driver installed, that problem would go away on its own. But boy was i wrong. It's just sitting in the middle of the screen still. So, i went into '/usr/src/linux' and ran 'mouseconfig'. I've tried every single possibility there, options i didn't even know what they were, to no avail.
So, having this been said, how do i get my mouse to work? How can i find out which option in /dev is the mouse connected to? Which option in menuconfig should i use? And just for the kicks, from scratch, how can i run a configuration utility so that i can select the mouse options for Slack? I ask this cause i read something about not installing or selecting the mouse module when building the kernel. I upgraded from 2.4 to 188.8.131.52, just so you know.
I got a PS/2 CTE mouse, and it worked fine with Fedora, but now, Slack does not want to use it, it probably doesn't like it, jejeje. Thanks for all the help in advance.
