are your using moused in your rc.conf.. if so .. try the following example:
moused_port="/dev/psm0" #or whatever port your mouse is uses
what brand / protocol does the mouse use?
..for most mice you can use the following example in your XF86Config
Option "Protocol" "Auto"
Option "Device" "/dev/psm0" #or whatever port your mouse is uses
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Is the computer running connected to a KVM switchbox?
..if so try adding the following line to your device hints:
device psm0 at atkbdc? irq 12 flags 0x100Hope this helps
