I have a PS/2, wired, optical mouse that I have been using flawlessly with
Windows and several Linux distributions for years now. I would like to
to Free BSD, but the mouse becomes very jittery within FreeBSD. I have
the mouse with both moused and X controlling the mouse, but in both cases
result is the same. The cursor on the screen tracks properly when I move my
mouse in a wide arc, but when I move the mouse in small increments the
does not follow the mouse at all. This makes it very difficult to click on
small targets such as an OK button.
uname -a output:
FreeBSD kienjakenobi 7.0-RELEASE FreeBSD 7.0-RELEASE #3: Sun Mar 16 15:45:08
2008 [EMAIL PROTECTED]:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/MYKERNEL i386
dmesg mouse output:
psm0: <PS/2 Mouse> irq 12 on atkbdc0
psm0: model IntelliMouse, device ID 3
Option "Protocol" "PS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/psm0"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
This does not seem to be a problem with X for several reasons. First, I use
this version of X.org with Linux with the same config that is shown above
without this problem.
Second, when I give control of the mouse over to moused, the problem does
change. It is visible even in the console when using moused.
I am using a custom kernel, but this problem does not change even when I am
using the GENERIC kernel.
Based on this information I think I have crossed out most potentional
but I hope I missed something.
