Hey everyone,

New to FreeBSD coming off of Slackware Linux.

I went through the install okay but the mouse (an optical mouse, non-USB) is dead when i do 'startx'. The mouse should be recognized as a PS/2 but it wasn't. I have edited the XF86Config and changed it to an IMPS/2 and added

Options "Buttons" "5"
Options "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

to the file. This was a fix for Slackware and I thought it may have been the same problem but, still nothing.

Any ideas?
