Description dan 2003-04-11 17:01:55 UTC
Ok, my mouse is /dev/input/mouse0 
Yesterday i came home and mouse wasnt working in Xfree 4.3.0-r1. 
I found out that somehow /dev/input/mouse0 was no longer working and now there was 
a new /dev/input/mouse1 created all by itself. I told X to use that and restarted it, and 
that fixed it. 
Today it happened again, but now i have /dev/input/mouse2 
What's going on? :) 

Reproducible: Always

Comment 1 Seemant Kulleen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-04-11 23:13:21 UTC
please post: emerge info
Comment 2 Jay Pfeifer (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-04-27 02:23:40 UTC
try using /dev/input/mice 
Comment 3 dan 2003-05-01 20:54:45 UTC
maybe that would work. Right now I'm using /dev/gpmdata because gpm is running. 
Still it's strange. 
Comment 4 Jay Pfeifer (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-05-09 17:08:06 UTC
well, never did get the emerge info or full system info.
comment #2 is your best option for xfree.
