That works with the standard, but not the wireless. The wireless HAS to use USB...

i think this has been also discussed in other threads...

short sum-up:

[*] usb -> uhci or ohci
[*] usb -> hid support
[*] input core support -> mouse

i think thats it... ur mouse dev will be /dev/input/mouse0

Well, so far it isn't working:

mellofone@gentoo mellofone $ ls /dev/input -l
total 0
crw-r--r-- 1 root root 13, 63 Dec 31 1969 mice

But I am running the gentoo-r7 kernel, which, IMHO, royally stinks when it comes to any outside/additional hardware... Any ideas?

For some reason, the gentoo sources don't even recognize when I plug the base in...

I got it working, but not with ANY of the gentoo sources (r1-r7). I tried the vanilla as well as stock downloaded devel kernel 2.5.21 and it worked with both of them...

What is the difference between the IMPS/2 or ExplorerPS/2 drivers in X?

I am using IMPS/2 now and was wondering what (if any) difference the Explorer driver would do...

Yeah I have a Logitec wirelass combo (mouse and KB) and they work fine in Gentoo. I chose the Logitec wirelass KB pro and Microsoft Intellimouse in X setup. Everything except the little thumb button works, after adding ZAxisMapping "4 5". I think the thumb button is rewcognised but I havent mapped it to anythingg yet (Option "Buttons" "6" etc)
