XFree86 with Creator3D and serial mouse



While attempting to get XFree86 working on an Ultra 30 with a Creator3D
(sunffb) card, I ran into some trouble getting the mouse to work (the
appropriate mouse device didn't seem to exist in /dev, and I didn't know
how to create it).

I attempted a workaround by plugging in a Microsoft serial mouse.  It
works, but the mouse pointer moves extremely slowly (updates only about
once every 0.5 seconds).  I'm used to seeing jerky mice on Suns, but this
is ridiculous!

Other than for the mouse pointer, the X server appears to be running at
full speed, and DRI even appears to work (the sunffb driver seems to load
it automagically, though it fails when explicitly loaded in the Module
section)

We're having Sun mice fail around here, so it'd be great if I could get the
MS mouse to work properly.  The Sun mouse that was on this box is already
being used elsewhere.  Any ideas?

The config file below is what I'm using.  It probably has all sorts of
other problems, which you're all welcome to tell me about....

the
# Debian X Configuration tool, using values from the debconf database.
