I was able to install Xorg and xfce on the HP Mini under FreeBSD 7.2
Sysinstall from main FreeBSD server.
Mouse (touch pad) works as root just fine on the screen under Sysinstall
tester, but not as user under Xorg. Anybody had success with getting
touchpad mouse to work on a netbook. This HP Mini is similar to Ausus EEE.
