How can you tell it's not detected by X when it doesn't display
anything? ;) Looks good from the log, you need /dev/input/mice with
protocol ImPS/2 for both.

So X does start, only you don't see anything. At least some Macs seem to
require the horizontal refresh to be around 60 kHz, so try something

	HorizSync 55-65

in the monitor section. If that still doesn't work, look at the log why
the modes get rejected.
