Thanks to all who replied. It's working now, apparently spontaneously. It may have started as a connection problem--that's all I can think of. The first time I plugged it in and rebooted, the error occurred. I tried moving it to other ports, but I neglected to reboot--after all, USB is supposed to be hot-pluggable, unlike the PS/2 keyboard, right?
At some point, the error messages stopped after a reboot. I can only speculate that there was something in the first USB connector that prevented a good contact, and that it got scraped out after a move or two. Anyone know why the USB/mouse system can't recognize a connection after a reboot, or what administrator action might allow it? Now I have to get the nvidia driver up. Cross your fingers. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
