I've recently installed FreeBSD 6.3, and I've got a problem with
I've installed it, followed the pkg-message :

It works, dmesg gives :
psm0: <PS/2 Mouse> irq 12 on atkbdc0
psm0: model Synaptics Touchpad, device ID 0

ps shows me that moused doesn't run.

xorg.conf :
InputDevice     "Synaptics_Touchpad"    "CorePointer"
Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier      "Synaptics_Touchpad"
        Driver          "synaptics"
        Option          "Device"                "/dev/psm0"
        Option          "Protocol"              "psm"

And here is a part of Xorg.log :
(WW) <default pointer>: No Device specified, looking for one...
(II) <default pointer>: Setting Device option to "/dev/psm0"
(--) <default pointer>: Device: "/dev/psm0"
(==) <default pointer>: Protocol: "Auto"
Synaptics DeviceInit called
SynapticsCtrl called.
(II) <default pointer>: SetupAuto: hw.iftype is 3, hw.model is 13
(II) <default pointer>: SetupAuto: protocol is SysMouse
(WW) fcntl(15, O_ASYNC): Inappropriate ioctl for device
Synaptics DeviceOn called
(EE) xf86OpenSerial: Cannot open device /dev/psm0
	Device busy.
(WW) Synaptics_Touchpad: cannot open input device
couldn't enable device 3

Protocol isn't psm, why ? Can I force it ?
/dev/psm0 isn't used or it is used by Xorg (I saw it with fstat)

any idea ? I didn't had this problem with 6.2 but may be I wasn't up to
date with xorg.
