USB mouse, right ? (prev posts didn't mention - or did I miss it ?)
right, so this sounds like a 'pre' X issue (system level USB isn't
loading...or the like)...
The IMPS/2 would come into play in either a gpm.conf or XF86Config, but
again, you'd have to be getting system level recognition of the hardware
prior to that (during boot).
I'm looking at dmesg on a Suse 9.1 box here at work - I do see USB stuff
loading on mine (sorry, I'd clip it but the xterm I peaked at is on
another box across the hall). Do you see USB detection stuff in dmesg ?
My install was the 'Server' install, pretty 'vanilla' package selection,
no other special RPMs nor any Kernel tricks (stock kernel) at play.
