I've just installed Gentoo on my Thinkpad T22.
Now i want to use an external usb keyboard and
a usb mouse, which is connected with the keyboard-
usb hub.

I'd like to know want to know which kernel options i have to activate
and which modules i have to use.
Or if I have to do some other things, to get both external keyboard
and mouse running.

My current kernel USB settings are:
<*> Support for USB
[*]Prelineary USB device filesystem
<*> UHCI Alternate Driver
<M> USB Human Interface Device
[*] HID Input Layer Support

Thanks for any help.

USB keyboard problems have been discussed some here. If you haven't yet,
you might try a search for usb and keyboard. Add kernel in the search, that
might narrow it down if you get too many results. I don't use USB, so I can't
offer any other assistance. Hope you find something.

Hmm I searched the forums but didn't find anything useful. I also checked this site here http://www.linux-usb.org/USB-guide/x194.html
I installed the modules mentioned there, but my keyboard still doesn't funcion. However it was working during the installations of Gentoo.

Any help with this would be great!

Sometimes loading as a "M"odule doesn't work well. Try compiling it into the kernel (* instead of M).

Thanks that worked great.
Is it generally better to set things directly in the compiler instead of setting up modules? When is what better? Anybody got a link to a good FAQ for modules vs. Kernel?

Thanks

I normally put things like network cards and sound cards and outher cards :D as modules, and put everytrhing else in the kernel. I only want that to be modular. Everything else shouldnt change much(or at all).
