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

Hum ... I posted the bug with an older version of the kernel and mixed up the kernel versions while posted the bugreport.

I tried with all the following versions of the kernel :
> * 2.6.30-1-686 #1 SMP

> * 2.6.26-1-686 #1 SMP (but it warns me at boot time that the kernel is
> two old for this version of udev - no sysfs)
> * 2.6.29-2-686 #1 SMP
I'm sure at least the 2.6.26 used to have no problem when I used it at the time, but it does not now. Maybe it's not the kernel itself ...

This kernel version is no longer in Debian. *Please upgrade to the current

version and test whether that fixes the problem.



Ben.

recent and supported is 2.6.31 please provide test result of it.
thanks

Hello, I compiled my own 2.6.31 since it is still not in the debian repositories for my processor, and the results are exactly the same as in the previous versions. Do I need to select some parameters for the kernel before building it ?

The 2.6.31-1-686 kernel is now on unstable (the bug is attributed to the wrong kernel, if the architecture is involved), so I installed it, and the result is always the same ...

I'm sorry we didn't respond to this message sooner.

This doesn't really look like a bug in the kernel. Have you tried
plugging the mouse into a different port? If you have another OS
installed on this computer, does the mouse work under that?

Ben.

*I don't really use this computer these days but I can answer yes and yes again to your questions. Is it possible to recategorise the bug to udev or hal ?

Update : the mouse works after an update, it was probably not a kernel bug since it works whichever is the version of the kernel.
The bug can be closed.
