Xorg mouse and massive error log messages problems

Just installed Xorg package from parkages-current hoping to get 
environment containing all the fixes. Still have the no mouse curser 
movement on xfce desktop.

Option "AllowEmptyInput" "Off"
statement to ServerLayout section of /etc/X11/xorg.conf
got the mouse curser moving.
But I still get the the mouse error messages in the X11 log.

{EE) xf86OpenSerial: Cannot open device /dev/psm0 Device busy.
(EE) PS/2 Mouse: cannot open input device
(EE) PreInit failed for input device "PS/2 Mouse"
(EE) config/hal: NewInputDeviceRequest failed

Is there some other correct solution?

I am receiving massive flooding of the Log file: "/var/log/Xorg.0.log" 
with the follow messages

Xlib:  extension "Generic Event Extension" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib:  extension "Generic Event Extension" missing on display ":0.0"

I found a post in the questions archives where the person was saying 
these messages are meaningless and can be ignored. It's not a problem 
the ignore them, but my log get massive in size and consumes my free 
disk space. I know i can configure to rotate the log at a given size. 
But that is not the solution. I need to know how to stop these messages 
from being issued in the first place.
