I am having issues getting my USB mouse running. I don't get any error messages of the sort, and when I do #cat /dev/ums0 I don't get any funny garbage like I normally do out of a IO device. (That is after I kill moused).


Any suggestions?

I had this. I had to start some daemon before starting X... what was it now... devd? usbd? psmd? moused? Something like that, anyway. And I had to specify the "mouse port" IIRC. You know, something like "moused -p /dev/ums0".

I tried that, but I get nothing. Should I expect to see garbage from #cat /dev/sysmouse and then move the mouse around? Can you do that in console mode, and see if that gives you anything?

moused(1) with usbd(1). Don't forget to compile uhid, ums, and all other dependent drivers into the kernel, either statically or as modules (man ums, uhid will get you on your way here).

Try moused with auto detection, using /dev/ums0. If you don't see anything about a USB mouse being attached in dmesg, you don't have the right drivers compiled for your kernel. If you do, moused / usbd hasn't been setup yet.

cat /dev/sysmouse will yield you the info you seek in the end, but you should try /dev/ums0 first, because that will work regardless of whether or not moused is started.

Good luck :),
