I've been trying for a few days to get FreeBSD on my workstation (been running it for a couple of years on my gateway/router box), but it just does not like my mouse (a Logitech MouseMan).

I've seen other posts in this mailing list, and freebsd-current, and through googling found other people who seem to have this problem too. I know a workaround is to use a USB->PS/2 converter and use the receiver in PS/2 mode, but I've 'misplaced' the converter that came with the mouse.

Tried FreeBSD 4.9 and 5.2 -releases, and updated 5.2 to -current last night, but no luck with any of them.

I've read through the other recommendations and can confirm that the usbd daemon is starting, and that it also spawns moused, but there is no pointer movement, and when I kill moused and cat /dev/ums0 I don't get symbols appearing onscreen when I move the mouse.

The motherboard has ohci and ehci host controllers, when I use a kernel with ohci only, it appears that usbd kicks in correctly, but the mouse does nothing. When I use ehci only it says /dev/ums0 device not found, and when I use a kernel with both ohci and ehci it says /dev/ums0 device busy.

The relevant section of dmesg output looks like this-

uhub0: nVidia OHCI root hub, class 9/0, rev 1.00/1.00, addr 1
uhub0: 3 ports with 3 removable, self powered
ums0: Logitech USB Receiver, rev 1.10/13.10, addr 3, iclass 3/1
ums0: 5 buttons and Z dir.

From the information gathering I've done it appears that FreeBSD just doesn't like this receiver (although I'd gladly be proven wrong), and if that is the case, my question would then become 'where do I go now/what can I do to try and get this problem resolved?'
