BenQ M310 Mouse on Linux

[BenQ M310 Mouse]
I've bought this small mouse for my laptop (that's also new, a Dell Inspiron 600m). It is a nice small, easily portable mouse, with a self-contained wireless dongle.

I had some problems with using that on my Fedora Core 2 Linux installtion which is solved by applying this patch to kernel. I wish this patch is applied to the kernel with Fedora Core 3 which will appear in two weeks.

Update (2005-08-07): This patch is applied in newer kernels, but seems like there are some people out there having problem using m310 mouse with Gentoo. Check out this thread in Gentoo Forums. It may help.

I bought the same mouse and I'm trying to get it to work under gnome. I'm using Gentoo Linux... could you please post your xorg.conf and .config files or send it to me at the following address: dumont.guillaume@gmail.com

Thanks in advance!
