Hotplug and USB mouse wheel

I updated the kernel today, so i had to do a pacman -S nforce nvidia, in the process (between kernel and pacman) i rebooted and realized i was loading hotplug for nothing, as i was loading all the modules at rc.conf

So i deactivated it, rebooted, started x and got a nice and working pointer as usual, but i couldnt get the wheel to work!

The mouse wheel its declared as ZAxis... " 4 5" .. ..in xorg.conf, so i cant see the reason for this behavior.

I put hotplug back in rc.conf and got the wheel working again.

Any ideas appreciated!

Re: Hotplug and USB mouse wheel

Compare the lsmod output with and without hotplug, and see which modules are missing in the one. Adding one or more to rc.conf should fix it.

Re: Hotplug and USB mouse wheel

I had to add uhci_hcd to the modules array before my mouse would work at all, but if its working except the wheel, I'd hesitate to think it was a usb problem...

Re: Hotplug and USB mouse wheel

yes, its real wierd... and comparing lsmod.... mmm... i guess its a good time to learn how to use diff, coz using stock arch kernel loads LOTS of modules...
anyway, i will try that dumping the ls output to a file and checking with diff...

just do something like:

lsmod >nohotplug.list
lsmod >hotplug.list
diff nohotplug.list hotplug.list

Just googling around...

it might be about loading correct usb module.

Re: Hotplug and USB mouse wheel

Hey, thanks everyone for the replies!

lanrat, you got it, although they choose to recompile the kernel, im just going to try to load the module.

Hey

I was having this same problem today with my brand-spankin' nforce3 board. I don't know if this changed from 2.4 to 2.6, but the kernel config defaults to USB-UHCI host controller which is typically used for via and intel chipsets. The nforce3, however, uses the OHCI host controller. So, cd ..linux-2.6.10 , make menuconfig, device drivers, usb support, select OHCI HCD support. recompile, etc.

This was drivin' me nuts. Same exact thing..mouse works but no wheel . It took my usb printer not working for me to figure it out.

Hope that helps

(my chipset is a nforce3 too).

Thanks again.
