Which protocol? Do you use gpm also? If yes, then you don't want both
XFree and gpm to read /dev/sunmouse at the same time, just because it
can't work. In that case, this is what I use:

--- /etc/gpm.conf ---
--- /etc/gpm.conf ---

--- /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 ---
Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier      "Configured Mouse"
        Driver          "mouse"
        Option          "CorePointer"
        Option          "Device"                "/dev/gpmdata"
        Option          "Protocol"              "BusMouse"
        Option          "Emulate3Buttons"       "false"
        Option          "ZAxisMapping"          "4 5"
--- /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 ---

What is the behaviour, apart from the log file?

From what I see on your XFree86 log file, it seems that no mouse can be
found. Please check:
 - that gpm is really running (that's how I discovered about the missing
   space character), because your configuration of XFree relies on the
   availability of the /dev/gpmdata device file. Just do a 'ps aux' and
   check that the gpm process is still here
 - that gpm actually works (move the mouse, try some clicks)
 - that the gpm repeater protocol and XFree input protocols are the same
   (sun for gpm and BusMouse for XFree are)

I've had no success in trying to use *PS/2 protocols between gpm and

Bon courage.
