Re: cant get x server running.

--- Begin Message ---
I have a toshiba laptop. 
Attached is my XF86Config-4 file for you to have an example.

With most mice, you want to choose PS/2.

Here is the mouse section from my XF86Config-4 file, that is also

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier      "Configured Mouse"
        Driver          "mouse"
        Option          "CorePointer"
        Option          "Device"                "/dev/input/mice"
        Option          "Protocol"              "ImPS/2"
        Option          "ZAxisMapping"          "4 5"

The ZAxisMapping line is to get the wheel working for the mouse.

Hope that helps,

-Donnie Jones
