[SLUG] Getting a PS2 mouse to work
I have one mobo with an onboard PS2 connection (the mobo describes itself
as a PCPartner - el cheapo I concede) and despite everything I can think
of to try, I just cannot get a PS2 mouse to work; serial mouse - no
I know the mouse itself is OK as it works fine elsewhere.
I have tried the mobo connection both ways around. (It's a 5 inline plug)
I have tried locking IRQ 12 as Legacy in the BIOS.
I have run mouseconfig and all of the symlinks come out of there OK.
But when I fire up gpm or boot into X mode the mouse doesn't work AND the
keyboard is locked up solid necessitating a hard reboot.
