Erm, do you have an USB mouse?
If so, the "/dev/psaux" device is the wrong device to use, and "/dev/input/mice" is the correct device.


I was sure that I replied to this earlier today...  Perhaps I sent only to
Kent and not the list.

Mouse is a PS2 mouse.  X came up, but I could not move the pointer.

I found a 9-pin.  X works with it.

I swear that I did have the PS2 mouse and X working together previously.
The machine was woody at the time.

I'd really like to get the PS2 mouse working.  I've got 2 computers w/ 1 KVM
switch.  Only right now I need 2 mice...

You've got two mice hooked up to the machine?
