Hey, I just recently got use of a Blue & White G3 and put Gentoo on it.
Everything seems to be working well except for after a while X stops seeing my mouse. (I'm using a logitech optical mouse attached to the keyboard that came with the Mac.)
I searched the forums already, but I wasn't able to find anything helpful.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Yeah, I'll be working on something, then walk away for a few minutes and when I come back the mouse has stopped responding and /dev/input/mouse1 (which i have X pointing to) has disappeared.

woah...yeah, that's kinda weird...it looks like it detected the mouse 4 times differently.

Code:
mice: PS/2 mouse device common for all mice
input: Macintosh mouse button emulation as /class/input/input0
input: Logitech USB Mouse as /class/input/input2
input: USB HID v1.10 Mouse [Logitech USB Mouse] on usb-0000:01:06.0-1.2
input: Logitech USB Mouse as /class/input/input5
input: USB HID v1.10 Mouse [Logitech USB Mouse] on usb-0000:01:06.0-1.2
input: Logitech USB Mouse as /class/input/input7
input: USB HID v1.10 Mouse [Logitech USB Mouse] on usb-0000:01:06.0-1.2
input: Logitech USB Mouse as /class/input/input9
input: USB HID v1.10 Mouse [Logitech USB Mouse] on usb-0000:01:06.0-1.2


and I'm sorry if the formatting isn't quite right (I currently don't have use of my mouse - I'm emerging things and can't restart X at the moment[/code])

EDIT: That was the result of dmesg | grep -i mouse
I ran it again, this time grep'ing for usb, and it shows a bunch of random usb disconnects

Speaking from iMac G4 here with a logitech mouse. Attach your mouse on the mac itself not the
keyboard.
My mouse won't work under OSX if I connect it to the keyboard, and it is "choppy" if I use it from
the keyboard in linux. I think that's because it wants to draw too much power from the USB plug
in the keyboard. My own xorg.conf tells X to use /dev/input/mice ,
Code:
Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "Mouse0"
        Driver      "mouse"
        Option      "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
        Option      "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
        Option      "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
EndSection

I would recommend that you do that as well (it possibly help with reconnecting the mouse
which may be why it never completly stopped working for me during the time I attached it
to the keyboard).
Now, if your mouse works from the keyboard in OSX that becomes a completly different story.

Hey, thanks! I plugged the mouse directly into the computer and set it to watch '/dev/input/mice' and now it seems to be working.
