What happens when you try the boot option of pci=assign-busses ?

hardware : Thinkpad 240
software : DSL 4.2.5 Frugal Install


This worked well for me.  DSL had never previous booted my TI PCMCIA card + USB mouse but using your code it worked, kinda.

When DSL booted it properly detected the card but isnmod spit out a bunch of stuff about usb-hci.o or something.  By this point the mouse was receiving power, something previously not achieved in DSL.

However in DSL the mouse didn't work.  My usual built in mouse worked fine but not the USB+PCMCIA mouse.  I re-ran the and picked USB mouse.

Now the USB mouse works but the built in mouse is totally disabled.  In Win2k and Puppy Linux I can use both devices at the same time.  I'll tool around with this since I doubt it's too hard to get both devices `up` at the same time.

Thanks for the tip

Edit .xinitrc, since all mouse devices have their own devices, but also gather at /dev/input/mice.

Longer explanation: tinyX can only use one mouse device. If you select ps/2, it will use the ps/2 mouse device. Likewise with usb. But if you change it manually to the device which gets movements from all mice, you should be able to use both.
