My ugly mouse hack:
I am sure this question has already been answered, although I couldn't
find the answer via google.
Hardware and Software:
Logitech USB cordless mouse M/N:M-RN67 P/N:851390-0000 w/ ps/2 adapter
Auravision slimseries ps/2 keyboard /w wire
a starband kvm switch, 4 port PS/2 for both keyboard and mouse w/ extern
FreeBSD 5.3 stable cpu=2.8 cel
Using the ps/2 adapter with my mouse, was required to use the kvm.
dmesg reports this for my mouse by default:
psm0: <PS/2 Mouse> flags 0x24 irq 12 on atkbdc0
psm0: model IntelliMouse Explorer, device ID 4
the mouse will not work.
I now get this via dmesg:
psm0: <PS/2 Mouse> flags 0x204 irq 12 on atkbdc0
psm0: model Generic PS/2 mouse, device ID 0
I then edited /etc/rc.conf and disabled my console mouse (moused) (which
I would prefere worked)
I then edit the pointer section of /etc/X11/xorg.conf to:
Option "Protocol" "Auto"
Option "Device" "/dev/bpsm0"
notice that is the "b" psm device that i am using which is for blocking
mode or bpsm
At any rate, the mouse now works in X, through the kvm, and through usb
to ps/2 adapter.
I hope this helps someone else :)
