This last one is the only one I know anything about. If you configure X to use /dev/sysmouse, it will pick up on the device that moused creates. This may allow it to start working. Along this road may also lay a solution to #2, but I'm only guessing. If you absolutely can't get moused to work, comment out the lines in /etc/devd.conf that are causing it to autostart. -- Bill Moran http://www.potentialtech.com _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
