I've installed FreeBSD 7.2 with Xorg 7.4 server, but mouse (usb)

I've find out that Xorg now uses hal and dbus to configure mouse and
maybe this is a problem.

xorg-server uses if configured to use hal.

When I start hald (/usr/local/etc/rc.d/hald start) it don't tell anything, even 
verbose mode, except of:

#/usr/local/sbin/hald --verbose=yes
22:48:16.400 [I] hald.c:669: hal 0.5.11
22:48:16.400 [I] hald.c:678: Will daemonize
22:48:16.400 [I] hald.c:679: Becoming a daemon


#ps aux | grep hal
mutex 68396  0.0  0.1  1660  1060  p0  D+   10:48PM   0:00.00 grep hal

So I think it doesn't starts.

dbus_enable="YES" and hald_enable="YES" in /etc/rc.conf?

This is my xorg.conf (generated by `Xorg -configure):


Section "ServerLayout"
        Identifier     "X.org Configured"
        Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
        InputDevice    "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
        InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"

Section "ServerFlags"
   Option "AutoAddDevises" "off"

That's spelled wrong.  ("AutoAddDevices")

By turning that off, you are telling xorg-server to ignore hal detection of devices. So even if hal was running, it would be ignored.

If you let xorg use hal, you can remove the InputDevice sections above and below.

The Handbook section on xorg configuration is pretty thorough:
