I'm running FreeBSD 5.2.1 on a ThinkPad T41p. I'm using XFree86 4.4.0, installed from the binaries on the XFree site (the video card, an ATI Radeon FireGL T2, was apparently not supported with the radeon driver shipped with 4.3).
Initially, X was working fine, with no config file at all, yet I've run into problems trying to use a config file. I generated one with XFree86 -configure, but this set the driver to "ati", instead of to "radeon" which seems from its docs to be the one supporting my card. In any case, whether with the driver as "ati" or as "radeon", the trackpoint doesn't function at all, nor does the touchpad (which I disabled in the BIOS anyway, as some Web pages said this was necessary to use the third button and I don't like the touchpad anyway). Everything else seems to be OK but I can't get anywhere without any pointer. The InputDevice section maps the Device as /dev/sysmouse, which I thought is correct; there's no /dev/mouse. The several Web pages about FreeBSD on a T40 or T41 don't say anything helpful; this doesn't seem to be a problem for these users (the T41 guy did say that no config file was needed, but my problem is I _want_ to use one to set other details). Thanks for any suggestions.
