I have managed to get XFree86 up and running.. and it looks damn ugly (ofcourse).

Now I would be interested in using something like KDE.

How can I get KDE up and running?
Any links I should read up that will describe it for me, or any help you care to give?

Thanks :-)

Actually I'm stuck on The MOUSE part of that.

I cant get my USB Mouse to work in X.

I dont have a /dev/input, nor /usbmouse or /hid.

What am I doing wrong?

Most likely support for USB mouse has not been compiled into the kernel. I don't use any usb devices so I can't really help, but the Desktop guide do have some information on the topic.

As always a quick forum search would have given you loads of threads about the topic. I did a search for usbmouse and xfree and got many threads, among them USB mouse installation.

Next time, use the search function first, then post a question if you can't find the answer. :)

Hi thanks for the link, but it really did'nt help that much. :-)

USB support is compiled into the kernel.

During boot-up I see the mouse is detected.

Nothing under USB (make menuconfig) is <M>odules, all is *-kernel, could this be a error?

I dont see how I can get these modules:
Code:

mousedev
usbmouse
input
usbcore
usb-ohci

installed... after all, i Do have to select some switches in the make menuconfig, dont i? Which are those modules equivalent in make menuconfig?

Thanks.

I do use search. :-)

When everything works I think I shall write a über-dummies guide to Gentoo installation.. =)

This will give you the required modules that you're lookin' for.

Once you recompile your kernel, you can add usbmouse, hid, usbcore, uhci, and input to your /etc/modules.autoload (after your NIC module). This will give you the /dev/input and the required links to your mouse.

Then just continue following the Gentoo Linux Desktop Configuration Guide, as mentioned by CDLM, above.

Good luck!

Hi,

I added the VIA EHCI HCD instead of the Experimental.. but that did'nt help much.

A LSMOD gives me
usbcore
8139too
mii

My autoload file includes.
8139too
usbcore
usb-uhci (the other was uhci (i.e, the M you had selected)
hid
mousedev

Only let me run USBCORE.

I was told to add from "INPUT CORE" as well.

The mouse is detected during bootup as I can see from the messages.. and also the mouse light turns on.. so I guess its working?

How can I check the boot-log file and see what was loaded?

Hmm.. this might be a devfsd.conf issue, not a kernel module issue :)

Ok, I've now recompiled the kernel with everything added as KERNEL instead of modules.

Time to see if it works :-)
