I have recently installed FreeBSD 4.8 and am having trouble getting my 
PS/2 mouse to work with X11/ Gnome. The mouse works when setting up 
moused with /stand/sysinstall and xf86cfg but when gnome loads any 
mouse movement translates into the cursor moving to the top right of 
the screen. I have tried the various protocols under xf86cfg and 
followed the instructions in the FAQ that suggest adding lines to the 
config file, and also linking /dev/mouse and /dev/sysmouse. I am at a 
loss so any help would be highly appreciated.
