RE: mouse configuration ultra 60

Figured it out.  It had to be changed to a PS/2 mouse rather than a sun
busmouse.  Took a posting from Slashdot in the middle of a 2.6.0
announcement for me to find that.  Couldn't find it anywhere else.  Seems
like that would be some pretty important information on any 2.6.0 upgrade

Strange issues with mouse.  It went from working to quit working and I don't
know why.  I figured out how to get my console working with the su serial
driver in the kernel options. (also need console on serial option so I had
to recompile twice...stupid me)

Now the mouse quit working in X.  here is what I have to do:

Current configuration
Kernel 2.4.21
/dev/mouse -> /dev/sunmouse
Section "InputDevice"
	Identifier	"Configured Mouse"
	Driver		"mouse"
	Option		"CorePointer"
	Option		"Device"		"/dev/mouse"
	Option		"Protocol"	"BusMouse"
Dmesg |grep -I mouse
Su(mouse) at 0x1fff13062f8 (irq = 4,7ea) is a 16550A
Sun Mouse-Systems mouse driver version 1.00
Mice: PS/2 mouse device common for all mice
Sunmouse: Successfully adjusted to 1200 baud.

2.6 configuration
kernel 2.6.1
/dev/mouse -> input/mouse0

Section "InputDevice"
	Identifier	"Mouse0"
	Driver		"mouse"
	Option		"Protocol" "auto"
	Option		"Device" "/dev/mouse"
dmesg |grep -I mouse

mice: PS/2 mouse device common for all mice
input: Sun Mouse on su/serio0

thanks for any help.
