Hello,

i want to try out the new airport-extreme driver on my ibook g4. For this i have to install a 2.6.15.x kernel.
I have a working 2.6.12 branch of the kernel and copied the config-file to 2.6.15. Then i have done a "make oldconfig" to add changes to the "old" config file.

The 2.6.15.x kernel starts, but in X my usb-mouse does not work.

Maybe someone had the same Problem and has a hint for me ??

regards, Fugee

I would go through your kernel config and make sure something funky didn't happen. To quote the official upgrade guide:
Quote:
The only situation where [re-using the configuration file from your old kernel when configuring the new one] is appropriate is when upgrading from one Gentoo kernel revision to another. For example, the changes made between gentoo-sources-2.6.9-r1 and gentoo-sources-2.6.9-r2 will be very small, so it is usually OK to use the following method. However, it is not appropriate to use it in the example used throughout this document: upgrading from 2.6.8 to 2.6.9. Too many changes between the official releases, and the method described below does not display enough context to the user, often resulting in the user running into problems because they disabled options that they really didn't want to.

What is your usb mouse pointing to in your xorg.conf file?
Try cat /dev/input/mice or whatever the file is to verify that it should still be using that same file.
I'm probably wrong but I remember having this problem a while ago on a different distro.

Have you checked your xorg log file to see if you could find any errors relating to the mouse.

in the kernel messages-file i have found the reason why my usb-mouse is not working:

PCI: Probing PCI Hardware
PCI: Cannot allocate ressource region 0 of device 0001:10:18.0
PCI: Cannot allocate ressource region 0 of device 0001:10:19.0
Apple USB OHCI 0001:10:18.0 disabled by firmware
Apple USB OHCI 0001:10:19.0 disabled by firmware

but in the kernel-configuration i don`t find a anything to solve this "error".

after the third try i manually got a kernel configured where usb is not disabled from the start. In the booting-process infoes about my mouse are shown. Then x starts, but, the mouse is not wirking. Strange about this is, thta when i move the mouse, the red optical light turns on an after 1 or 2 seconds off. But the mouse-pointer on the screen does not move.

hm, perfect topic..

I've got a strange problem with 2.6.15-rc5:
I can't write on my hfsplus data partition anymore
it's mouted rw and from Panther or with 2.6.14-gentoo-r2 it works fine, but with 2.6.15-rc5 I get "the filesystem is readonly" (in german)
Code:
$ echo foo >> /data/bar
bash: /data/bar: Das Dateisystem ist nur lesbar
 $ mount
種[...]
/dev/hda9 on /mnt/data type hfsplus (rw,noatime)
[...]


any ideas?

Two things:

1. Make sure the drive was unmounted cleanly, check your dmesg
2. They added a check for journaling, you'll need to force on r/w access on journaled HFS+.

it was umounted fscking cleanly and checked it several times, with panther's disk utility and the ported fsck.hfsplus ;)

checked dmesg and like you said,
Code:
HFS+-fs: write access to a jounaled filesystem is not supported, use the force option at your own risk, mounting read-only.


with -o force it works again

thx for showing me, what was in front of my own eyes, JoseJX ;)
