I have a Diamondback that works well under Xorg and console:
ums0: Razer Razer Diamondback Optical Mouse, rev 2.00/1.00, addr 2,
Option "Protocol" "auto"
Option "Device" "/dev/sysmouse"
Option "Buttons" "5"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
I think that enabling usdb in /etc/rc.conf will kickstart moused,
giving you console access to the mouse; and this even though moused is
disabled by default in /etc/defaults/rc.conf.
In my country there is problem; and that problem is GOP; it take
everybody's money; and it never give it back...throw GOP down the
well; so my country can be free...
