Thanks Jakub and Tom,
Try to answer both together. Hope it isn't confusing. First
Before rebooting I ran portmaster -a and updated hald. I then
rebooted and my problem begain.
Using a standad black terminal works wonderfully. It just needs:
keymap="spanish.iso.acc.kbd" in rc.conf I've tried all the spanish
maps to get the closest to my keyboard so the rc.conf seems correct.
Before the reboot and hald upgrade, all was well. I haven't ever
touched nor was I aware that a hal policy file existed. (Going to try
killing hal first. It has always been a pain in the...... neck.
Sounds like I need to disable hal and restart X and maybe all will be
well again. Results. bsd terminal works great but X doesn't
recognize the mouse. The problem is definitely hal. I hope it dies
soon. Going to study hal a bit. Thanks,
