Hi,keyboard and /dev/hid/mouse_000 for the mouse.
I know, this thread is old. But the problem still persists today. So I ran everything from the beginning once again on spare HDDs.
Well, it seems that upgrading from hp-ux 11.23 October 2003 (I was wrong: October, not September) to May 2005 is different than a fresh install of hp-ux 11.23 May 2005. At least on the USB front, namely the USB-00 fileset.
When upgrading from 0310 to 0505, the USB-00 fileset release is B.11.23[.xy]. Device files are present in the /dev/hid directory and there's no /dev/deviceFileSystem directory. XFree86 is configured by default to run with /dev/hid/kbd_000 for the
By contrast, a fresh install of 0505 gives release C.01.00.00 for the USB-00 fileset. The /dev/hid directory is missing, apparently replaced by /dev/deviceFileSystem. If missing, the keyboard and mouse device files keyboardMux and mouseMux are createdtherein at boot time by the /sbin/init.d/CreateUsbSf script. XFree86 is configured by default to run with /dev/deviceFileSystem/keyboardMux for the keyboard and /dev/deviceFileSystem/mouseMux for the mouse.
There I am. I don't know if it's expected that upgrade vs fresh install results in different fileset releases (I've only looked at the USB-00 fileset). I don't know either if I can do something to make USB-00 release C.01.00.00 work fine with my mouse (just in case, insf -e didn't help and didn't recreate the old /dev/hid/* device files). I may try to downgrade USB-00 back to release B.11.23[.xy] as hp-ux 11.23 May 2005 is the last available release for the Itanium workstations, so I can't upgrade to
