     What version of the kernel are you using? If you are using a new
kernel version you need to update the dev directory mouse entry. Try
typing uname -a to find out the kernel version. I had to do this on my Dual
CPU G4s using 2.2.17pre20-ben3.

mkdir /dev/input
cd /dev/input
mknod mice c 13 63
cd /dev
rm mouse
ln -s input/mice mouse

This should create a /dev/mouse sym link to the character special file

Good Luck

Subject: USB not working

Watching closely during boot-up, I can see usb mouse driver loaded, usb
keyboard driver loaded, usb hub driver loaded, but then when it's all
finished booting I get no mouse or keyboard! I checked the PCI card listing
and I can see the USB card I have in my beige g3. Any suggestions???
