I want to try out my old mouse after i cleaned it. (Bus 003 Device 005: ID 1532:0101 Razer USA, Ltd Copperhead Mouse)
The mouse work as it should on a p3, windows 2000 box.
In gentoo only the usb keyboard layer works, the mouse layer is not working
Please ignore the g-spy stuff as this is my secondary usb mouse, which needs the holtek flag in the kernel config so ti works.

My second usb mouse needs the holtek stuff without ti wont work afaik. What do I need for a razer copperhead please?
I even updated the gentoo-sources

I am quite sure the missing piece is something in the USB subsection of the kernel.config
As the mouse works in windows 2000 on an old laptop, i doubt it is a hardware issue. it is a driver issue.
side buttons on the left side works, these are forward and backwards in the browser
right click works
left click works
Not working are the x and y axis movements
|grep INPUT_DEVICES /etc/make.conf
INPUT_DEVICES="evdev synaptics keyboard mouse wacom joystick"
the mouse refuess to work with an older sysrescue-cd
i try to download an ubuntu iso and hope it is a livecd where i could test if it works there.
