I just installed FreeBSD 4.8 on an old Dell machine. The mouse in a Micro$oft two button "Mouse Port Compatible" mouse that has a PS/2 (small & round) connector. I tried to set it up as a PS/2 mouse on the /dev/sysmouse (default) port. It tests out OK when the sysinstall screen asks me to test it. When I get into KDE, the mouse will not work. It stays at the top of the screen and causes some of the GUI panels/small menus to flicker when it is moved. I tried to install it as a Micro$oft serial mouse but no luck. The mouse works fine when I was running Windoze and Solaris 9 on the same box. Any tips/hints appreciated.
