I'm having trouble with this mouse under FreeBSD 4.8-RELEASE.
If I attach the mouse and then boot FreeBSD, it works great, but
if I disconnect the mouse while FreeBSD is running, moused fails
to notice that the mouse is gone and keeps running.
In addition, reconnecting the mouse fails to, well, reconnect
kill -HUP on the moused process doesn't work either.
Usually, (like, under crappy Windows XP), I just connect the
mouse and press the "connect" button on the mouse's base station.
A little green light will blip, signifying that the base station
is ready to rock, then I press connect on the mouse and it works.
Under FreeBSD, pressing "connect" doesn't display the little green
light. Is it possible that the base station isn't getting power?
I did NOT use special logitech drivers under windows XP. I just
used the standard USB mouse driver (actually, I didn't have to
install anything, so I guess that means it was the standard
