I am having fun setting up Arch64 ....
Mouse is not working as it should, have tried many different options in xorg.conf
mouse is PS/2, works fine under Arch32 ...
dmesg gives weird errors
psmouse.c isa0060/ser101/input0 ;-S google did not help...
psmouse.c: Explorer Mouse at isa0060/serio1/input0 lost synchronization, throwing 3 bytes away. psmouse.c: Explorer Mouse at isa0060/serio1/input0 lost synchronization, throwing 3 bytes away. psmouse.c: Explorer Mouse at isa0060/serio1/input0 lost synchronization, throwing 2 bytes away.
xorg.conf mouse section
Section "InputDevice" Identifier "PS/2 Mouse" Driver "mouse" Option "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2" # Option "Buttons" "7" # Option "ZAxisMapping" "6 7" Option "Device" "/dev/psaux" # Option "Emulate3Buttons" "true" # Option "Emulate3Timeout" "70" # Option "SendCoreEvents" "true" EndSection
tried different options no luck yet....
do you have the psmouse module loaded? or is it compiled in whatever kernel you're running?
emm good question...
checked kernel config looked ok ...
will try psmouse see what happens ;-)
Ok I have tried both PS/2 & USB mice no difference
looking for psmouse.c ??? seems to be the problem
Can find others with similar problems but no solution...
Gentoo Forums let me down lol
/me continues his quest...............
which input device node are you using? if not /dev/input/mice try that one, haven't used psaux in a while so i can't tell if it is supposed to work but mice didn't let me down with whatever mouse and platform i had yet.
I recognize that while theory and practice are, in theory, the same, they are, in practice, different. -Mark Mitchell
Thats the thing it works fine in Arch,Archie USB or PS/2 only in Arch64 do I have the problem ....
Just starting to wonder if I need to rebuild kernel :?
O & thanks.. ;-)
Found this on kerneltrap...
I'm getting these:
psmouse.c: PS/2 mouse at serio0 lost synchronization, throwing 2 bytes away.
Check your mouse cable. If this only happens when you move your mouse in a
certain way, fix the mouse cable or replace the mouse.
Check your kernel and harddisk settings. This message can also happen when
the mouse interrupt is delayed more than one half of a second. Make sure DMA
is enabled for your harddrive and CD-ROM. Kill your ACPI/APM battery
monitoring applet. Try disabling ACPI, frequency scaling. Make sure your
time is ticking correctly, often with frequency scaling it gets unreliable.
Even if you're using the ACPI PM Timer as a clock source - actually this
often leads to the above problem.
post your lsmod. Compare lsmod in gentoo64 to arch64 compare lsmod in arch32 to arch64. Try rebuilding the kernel (just the stock kernel, no need to custom, unless you want to try it). Definately switch off /dev/psaux in xorg.conf, that's a kernel24 relic.
Are you getting the same dmesg errors with a USB mouse that you get with PS/2?

Nothing looks out of the ordinary
It may be releated to hardware clock problem...
Will try rebuild of kernel I have Gentoo64 config (*yuk!*) will try that out
I do get that hardware clock error on startup of Arch64 (Setting hardware clock, error, no way to set clock or something). That certainly could be related. Anybody know how to fix that one?
Well rebuilding kernel sorted hwclock but not mouse problem
From reading forums its not uncommon ... mouse works fine under Arch32 soo its either kernel or its a hardware issue ;-(
/me keeps lookin'
