Review of Linux Compatibility

The Sharkoon Drakonia is a wired USB gaming laser maus and has the USB ID 0x04d9:0xa067. The mouse is identified as:

Bus 001 Device 004: ID 04d9:a067 Holtek Semiconductor, Inc.

A driver for the mouse is included in the Linux kernel since version 3.11.2. Older kernels do not recognize the mouse but instead provide the following error:

usb 8-2: new full-speed USB device number 2 using ohci_hcd
input: Holtek USB Gaming Mouse as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:13.1/usb8/8-2/8-2:1.0/input/input17

For such older kernel version a re-compiliation of the Linux kernel is necessary and the kernel source file include/linux/hid.h has to be fixed by changing the value defined for HID_MAX_USAGES to the following fixed one:

#define HID_MAX_USAGES" 64000
