Mouse: Logitech optical wireless (the one with the rechargeable base
station and like 7 buttons)
*(This Mouse Is a usb mouse but i have a usb2ps2 connector that i have.)*
After my install finished (gone well and returned no errors, but i did not
set up the mouse yet). So i am going to try to configure the ps2 mouse
device " /dev/psm0"
flags "-z 4"
After this i usually reboot the machine,(need to learn how to stop and start
the moused from the command line ). Now weather i set the mouse up this way
or using /stand/sysinstall, i get the same effect. If i move the mouse
around in console mode i notice that it disappears while i am moving it and
then reappears in its new position when i stop moving it. So when i startx
i cannot follow where my mouse is at because of the blinking problem. This
Now i notice if i disable acpi at startup the mouse works correctly in the
console mode, but i loose the ability to use my usb ports(figures), and when
i try to startx with acpi disabled my mouse is stuck in the top right corner
Finally I try to use the mouse in the usb port, so i configure the mouse
such as (rc.conf)
moused_port="/dev/ums0" //This Number Came From dmesg.
after a reboot i can c my mouse in console mode and it moves around, but an
error occured during init of the rc.config file that reads something like
"cant open /dev/ums0, device busy". X will not run returns with an error
something like "no core pointer available".
So I have no mouse available in new 5.x series. I have no idea how to fix
this, any advice would help out thanx.
