    SubjectRe: Mouse Support in Kernel 2.6.8
    I have observed something which I would like to share
    with you. Do we need to change XF86Config file when we
    are migrating from Kernel 2.4 to 2.6.8 ?

    Whenever I boot my system [ either in Kernel 2.4 or
    2.6.8], I am prompt by kudzu to configure/
    unconfigure the following hardware devices:

    1. LGI|8051
    2. Generic PS/2 Wheel Mouse

    If I configure LGI|8051 only [not Generic Mouse
    because If I configure Generic Mouse, then I donot get
    Mouse Support in Kernel 2.4] in my Kernel 2.4, then
    everything works fine and I get mouse support. But If
    try to do the same thing in Kernel 2.6.8 [ i.e
    configure LGI|8051 and don't configure Generic PS/2],
    then my Kernel gives error in launching X Server and
    error is as follows:
    xf86OpenSerial can't open device /dev/ttyS1

    My XF86Config contents are as follows:
    # XFree86 4 configuration created by

    Section "ServerLayout"
    Identifier "Default Layout"

    this is the name of the

    # no need to change the default.
    # Multiple FontPath entries are allowed (they are
    concatenated together)
    # By default, Red Hat 6.0 and later now use a font
    server independent of
