I'm using a USB mouse on my 4.7-RELEASE box and I'm seeing strange
behavior. In short, when I boot the system, I need to immediately
'shutdown now' to single-user mode and then 'exit' back to multiuser mode
to get the mouse to work.
When the machine first boots, X will not load as /dev/ums0 is busy. lsof
and cat return:
# cat /dev/ums0
cat: /dev/ums0: Device busy
# lsof | grep ums
moused 97 root 3u VCHR 111,0 0t0 40 /dev/ums0
Now, the only moused line I have in /etc/rc.conf is:
and yet it's still running after system boot. Somehow bouncing to
singleuser mode and then back clears it up. How can I debug this? Where is
moused getting started? Note that once I come back to multi-user lsof
shows no processes using /dev/ums0 and X starts just fine.
Thanks - JB
PS: The 'cat /dev/ums0' trick I got from the Internet. When it's working,
if you cat the device and move the mouse around you get a lot of gibberish
in the terminal, it's a quick device test.
