YES... You are quite right...I solved my problem removing alias
to msbusmouse from conf.modules.
Today it is first time i got modules and i'm under impression, it
is really powerful and very C00L
Thank You.
Meybe one thing: wha conf.modules is not named modules.conf -
every configuration file is named *.conf....:)
And one more thing - to All who develop kernel - shouldnt it be
written somewhere that users mouse will work even if they dont compile in
kernel any of the mouse drivers mentioned during configuration ?
I use Linux 2 years and I got to this today. :)
