Default Bug#554158: linux-image-2.6-amd64: USB Dell "optical whell mouse" unrecognised

Package: linux-image-2.6-amd64
Severity: normal


My standard Dell USB mouse labelled "Optical Wheel Mouse" does not wok in xorg, nor in console with gpm and the "/dev/input/mice" device.

I tried to "cat /dev/input/mice" but nothing happens when I use the mouse.

I tried to log what happened when I plugged the mouse, and I've four logs file attached :

* a part of the dmesg related to the plug of the mouse (which seems fine to me)
* a part of the "lshal" command related to the mouse (which seems not fine to me, the mouse is not seen as a mouse but as another kind of generic usb stuff)
* a log from the "udevadm monitor" command when I unpluged the mouse, then plug it again (which seem weird, it seems that the correct devices are created, but just after that deleted when I plug the mouse again)
* a log from the "udevadm test" command with the usb device address, which I does not really understand.

The mouse used to work fine before an update I can't date, in june or july of this year probably. I'm not sure the kernel is involved as the mouse seems not to work with older versions of the kernel and don't work now with the same versions.

PS: I decided to post a bug on the kernel package after this discussion on the debian-users ml : http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.debian.user/367007/focus=367105 where there could be more informations.

This kernel version is no longer in Debian. Please upgrade to the current
version and test whether that fixes the problem.
