No keyboard and mouse on kernel 4.2

3 659
I gave kernel 4.2 a try and it does not like my keyboard and mouse: they simply don't work, although they are listest in lsusb (via ssh). The gpm deamon doesn't start and complains about missing /dev/input/mouse. In fact, there is only one file to be found in /dev/input:


  1. root@bananapi:~# ls -alF /dev/input/
  2. insgesamt 0
  3. drwxr-xr-x  4 root root     220 Dez  3 15:40 ./
  4. drwxr-xr-x 13 root root    4520 Dez  3 15:40 ../
  5. drwxr-xr-x  2 root root     120 Dez  3 15:40 by-id/
  6. drwxr-xr-x  2 root root     140 Dez  3 15:40 by-path/
  7. crw-rw----  1 root input 13, 64 Jan  1  2010 event0
Copy the Code

While at the same time, under kernel 3 there are these entries:

  1. root@bananapi:~# ls -alF /dev/input/
  2. insgesamt 0
  3. drwxr-xr-x  4 root root     220 Dez  3 15:40 ./
  4. drwxr-xr-x 13 root root    4520 Dez  3 15:40 ../
  5. drwxr-xr-x  2 root root     120 Dez  3 15:40 by-id/
  6. drwxr-xr-x  2 root root     140 Dez  3 15:40 by-path/
  7. crw-rw----  1 root input 13, 64 Jan  1  2010 event0
  8. crw-rw----  1 root input 13, 65 Jan  1  2010 event1
  9. crw-rw----  1 root input 13, 67 Jan  1  2010 event3
  10. crw-rw----  1 root input 13, 68 Jan  1  2010 event4
  11. crw-rw----  1 root input 13, 69 Jan  1  2010 event5
  12. crw-rw----  1 root input 13, 63 Jan  1  2010 mice
  13. crw-rw----  1 root input 13, 33 Jan  1  2010 mouse1

Copy the Code

Is this a known bug? Am I doing something wrong, did I miss something?

Which kernel do you use?
URL / configuration?

I use the kernel that is available in the repository. Now I am running

Linux bananapi 3.4.108-bananian #2 SMP PREEMPT Thu Aug 13 06:08:25 UTC 2015 armv7l GNU/Linux


and everything works. But when I switch to kernel 4.2 using bananian-config, I can't use neither mouse nor keyboard.

Aha, probably bananians new kernel is missing support for your mouse. I have no problems with it.
