CPU: the new 500 MHz iMac DV SE, apple pro mouse and pro keyboard.
Kernel: BenH's vmlinux-2.2.17pre13-ben1
Problems: couldn't get X cause couldn't get mouse configured.
Solution found: installed the modules (DUH! I feel stupid over that one),
and did several other small fixes, as follows:
RTFM: got the following (and did):
mknode input/mice c 13 63
ln -s input/mice mouse
ln -s input/mice usbmouse
set it for 1 button usb, emul 3 btn.
set it for iMac monitor, 1024x768, all three bit-depths
went down to the pointer section
protocol = "IMPS/2"
device = "/dev/input/mice"
saved and did
shutdown -r now
on reboot, login and did
now, it wants to look for mouse in /dev/mouse but that fails to poll on
startx. However, directly pointing it to /dev/input/mice worked fine. I
have no clue why; IFM.
can't figure out which keys are used to emulate btn-2 & btn-3; figure I'll
get a real 3-btn sooner or later. can run X, do many things with X. time to
RTFM again, so I can switch from KDE to GNOME... but that will wait.
am going to do some fiddling about, and see if I can try out goo's kernel
on another partition.
