View Full Version : X won't start running an upgraded 2.6 kernel
17th March 2004, 05:40 PM
I'm running FC1.90 (testing release) and I've upgraded the kernel with yum. When I chose the new kernel in the bootloader the bootprocess goes fine without any error, but X wont start cause of a mouse problem. I can't understand why, because the /etc/X11/XFConfig-4 is the same for both kernels.
P.s. I've removed the line "rhgb" from /boot/menu.lst

change /dev/psaux to /dev/input/mice in /etc/X11/XF86Config
had to do it myself today.

Yea, it's work !
But can you explain me why the mouse/dev path has changed ?

It was a change made in the 2.6 kernel versus 2.4, all 2.6.x kernels should use /dev/input/mice rather than /dev/psaux.
