| I have recently installed FreeBSD 4.8 and am having trouble getting my
| PS/2 mouse to work with X11/ Gnome. The mouse works when setting up
| moused with /stand/sysinstall and xf86cfg but when gnome loads any
| mouse movement translates into the cursor moving to the top right of
| the screen. I have tried the various protocols under xf86cfg and
| followed the instructions in the FAQ that suggest adding lines to the
| config file, and also linking /dev/mouse and /dev/sysmouse. I am at a
| loss so any help would be highly appreciated.

I faced the similar problem. this is how i solved it. maybe
there can be a better way.
# XFree86 -configure
/root/XF86Config.new is created.
check out the protocol and place it in your XF86Config file.
