I have tried to get my scroll wheel to work on my athlon64 but it is being very stubborn. Are there any tricks to get it working on this platform? I have used this on many other x86 systems with no difficulty.

Code:

Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier  "Mouse1"
    Driver      "mouse"
    Option      "Buttons" "5"
    Option      "Protocol"   "ImPS/2"
    Option      "ZAxisMapping"   "4 5"
    Option      "Device"     "/dev/mouse"
EndSection


This is an MS USB mouse that has never had any other problems. The mouse in X works great other than the lack of a scroll wheel. I have a gigabyte nforce3 150 if that makes any difference...

My xf86config is:
Code:

    Identifier  "Mouse1"
    Driver      "mouse"
    Option "Protocol"    "IMPS/2"
    Option "Device"      "/dev/usbmouse"
    Option "Buttons" "5"
    Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

try switching the protocol and if that doesn't work try passing this option off to your kernel
Code:
psmouse=noext

My XF86Config mouse settings are identical to the above ones except I didn't need to specify the number of buttons. The ZAxisMapping option is what got mousewheel working for me.

Hm. Maybye try commenting out the ZAxisMapping line? If it's working WITHOUT ZAxisMapping, maybye the mapping causes it to NOT work?

Thanks for the ideas but neither seemed to work. I can't find my ps2 adapter for my mouse so when I do I suppose I will try that. I noticed this in dmesg though. I may be missing something in my kernel config

Sounds like the usb mouse is getting remapped as ps2 by the bios or the kernel.

Okay so yeah, gigabyte thought it would be good to enable USB mouse/keyboard support in the BIOS. Once I disabled that the scroll wheel worked.

After reading your post, I noticed my scroll mouse did not scroll either, I just never use it, so in the interest science, I thought I'd check into it. My Protocol was set to Auto, and there was no ZAxisMapping.

I chenged it to:
Code:
Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "Mouse0"
        Driver      "mouse"
        Option      "Protocol" "ImPS/2"
        Option      "Device" "/dev/mouse"
        Option      "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
EndSection

And now the scroll works fine.
I'm using Kernel 2.6.3.
