USB->PS/2 adapter for mouse (O2)?
#1
Question  USB->PS/2 adapter for mouse (O2)?
Is it possible to use a USB->PS/2 adapter for a mouse on an O2?  Finding differing reports online, curious if I have to source a PS/2 mouse or if I can use a trusty adapter Smile

last time I tried it did not work for me, but I might have been using the a faulty adapter, I never really looked too much into it since I always had plenty of ps/2 mice/keyboards

I've been having issues with mine recently. It works fine on my Octane, fine in my Rev C O2 motherboard, but refuses to work in my O2 Rev D motherboard. Only a PS/2 mouse will work on my later rev O2.
Octane  1x 400Mhz R12k, 1Gb, V8, 6.5.30m

O2 300Mhz R12K (R10K upgrade mod),  384Mb, 6.5.30m, FPA  with  1600SW (Original R5K chassis, mobo and cpu in storage)

Interesting! I'll definitely give it a try and share my findings, at least. Wanted to start a thread on it since I could find very little online, and I'm sure others will be wondering as well over time. Smile
