View Full Version : PS/2 mouse driver for Xenix 386 2.3.4?

July 3rd, 2013, 11:36 AM
I am attempting to get the MGR windowing system up and running under Xenix in QEMU 1.4.0. Though QEMU passes my mouse through as an emulated PS/2 mouse, Xenix does not see it and "mkdev mouse" only lists:

1) Logitech serial
2) MS serial
3) Mouse Systems PC II serial
4) Mouse Systems PC mouse
5) MS Bus mouse
6) Olivetti Bus mouse
7) Logitech Bus mouse
8) Keyboard Mouse ( :confused: )

Unless the "keyboard mouse" is a way of emulating a mouse via keystrokes, it would appear that I need drivers for the PS/2 mouse?

Any thoughts, suggestions, software?

Was told elsewhere that the "keyboard mouse" _is_ the PS/2 driver. So I did mkdev mouse, configured a new kernel and had it lock tight at the "Control-D or Root Password" point. The Qemu monitor command info mice shows the PS/2 mouse as the only mouse in the emulator.

Off to ponder some more.

Probably the PS/2 mouse this way ovverides the keyboard.

Maybe your best bet is to pipe a real serial mouse to qemu? It kinda worked for me in vmware.
