mouse speed/acceleration under kernel24 /-26 under X

i just upgraded to the newest 2.6.5 kernel

have more kernels in my lilo (2.4, 2.6, 2.6-mm)

what i realized after update to 2.6.5 is:

the mouse in X booting kernel 2.6.5 is generally faster than in 2.4.x

Section "InputDevice"
  Driver       "mouse"
  Identifier   "Mouse[1]"
  Option       "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
  Option       "Name" "Autodetection"
  Option       "Protocol" "imps/2"
  Option       "Vendor" "Sysp"
  Option       "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
  Driver       "mouse"
  Identifier   "Mouse[3]"
  Option       "Device" "/dev/psaux"
  Option       "InputFashion" "Mouse"
  Option       "Name" "PS/2-Mouse"
  Option       "Protocol" "ps/2"
EndSection

is for both the same

it's not a problem, but i wondered why this is so and if anyone knows why

Re: mouse speed/acceleration under kernel24 /-26 under X

I had the same problem when I tried 2.6 when I was running Slackware, my mouse speeded up so much I had to set it to lowest speed and it would still be rather fast for my taste.

Either Arch Linux had a different configuration somewhere or they fixed it in later kernel revisions or related software, as my mouse is working pretty properly now with the average speed level setting.

Re: mouse speed/acceleration under kernel24 /-26 under X

ok, so it's not only my fantasy --- thanx for your reply :-)

the thing is that the speed difference is not that big for me ... it's only a little bit strange --- but nice as detector what kernel you are running
