Question Mouse can not work in Solaris 10

Dear frends,

My mouse in Solaris 10 machine has just failed today. The mouse itself is physically Ok, I can use it in my colleagues' Unix.

In my own box, the cursor is just floating in the centre of screen.

Any suggestions? Any method to check / modify hardware in solaris 10?

Solaris on SUN or P.C.?

This may or may not work for you -

To confirm if the keyboard and mouse are being seen by Solaris[TM] run cfgadm.


Ap_Id Type Receptacle Occupant Condition
c0 scsi-bus connected configured unknown
usb0/1 unknown empty unconfigured ok
usb0/2 usb-mouse connected configured ok
usb0/3 unknown empty unconfigured ok
usb0/4 usb-kbd connected configured ok

See the man page for cfgadm for more info
