RE: Still having USB mouse problems

I've had a similar experience with FreeBSD 5.4 and I've got a Logitech USB mouse on my play box (the one I'm using now). It doesn't work under 5.4. USB works on a couple other machines that I've tested it on, and I know that earlier releases of FreeBSD have had no problems with the mouse on this particular machine. *shrug* I couldn't say whats going on.

Shitty hardware? Shitty USB stack? No idea. I'm using a NetBSD live CD on the play box right now, and the mouse works fine.

Welcome to the world of computers. Some things work sometimes ;^)

Just recompile the kernel with the USB 2.0 option.
That's all.

Perhaps the default kernel should ship with USB 2.0 enabled?

"Just recompile the kernel with the USB 2.0 option."

Heh if *thats* the reason, I'd have to avoid FreeBSD like the plague on the grounds that such a requirement is stupid as my play box predates USB 2.0 ;^)

Something to try regardless...
