I’m running a nForce3 based board with a PS/2 KB and USB mouse but I can’t get the mouse to work. The mouse does not light up so my guess is that USB stack does not work. Any sugestions?
I have the same problem, ich dont can use my 0815 Mouse (USB) from Saitek and i have problems using a Keyboard (PS2), i dont can use this one too. I have inizialized a ext2 partition with the bfs filesystem and copy all files from the haiku.raw image to the partition. When i run haiku all runs great but no mouse and no keyboard :-(.
Edit: I’ve only run Haiku in VMWARE so not sure if ps2 is working yet.
Ok. Haiku has fairly complete EHCI ( usb 2.0 ) & UHCI ( usb 1.1 for VIA & INTEL chipsets ). Other chipsets (Nvidia, SiS, etc.) use OHCI ( usb 1.1 ).
OHCI is not working yet. The focus is mostly on EHCI & UHCI ( and these work ).
OHCI & UHCI are used for low speed, usb 1.1 ( or also known as Full Speed 2.0 = 12Mbit/s ) devices.
EHCI is used for Hi Speed 2.0 = 480Mbit/s ( you should be ok for Hi Speed - ie: external Hard Drives, some mp3 players, some memory sticks ).
If possible, use a ps2 mouse ( or usb to ps2 connector ) which I believe will work. Or if you’re intent on using usb, you may be able to get a usb adapter board but you have to make sure it is UHCI ( check if it uses VIA or INTEL for the main chip ).
You can also try the OHCI driver from BeOS R5 ( MAX ). It may work but no promises.
OHCI will probably be working by time R1 comes out.
Our developers don’t use the forums. If the bug still exists please file a bug report at our ticket tracker: http://dev.haiku-os.org
That way, someone can fix it.
pagefault, I probably can’t help you, but could you please post the results of running “ls -R /dev”,and also what usb_dev_info has to say about your USB devices?
If nothing else helps, you can try turning on USB Legacy support, in BIOS, making your USB mouse appear as a PS/2 mouse, AFAIK.
This page explains it somewhat:
However, it would be good to figure out why the USB mouse does not work, so more people can have their input devices always work at first boot. For this, you may have to file a bug report at http://dev.haiku-os.org/

If in the note under the User Support Forum you tell people to post their problems with Haiku, you are likely to lead them to believe that this is a good place to report bugs.
To avoid confusion, I added to the note info to the effect that bug reports should be filed at dev.haiku-os.org to the note.
