branden, hi, i am not sure if this is to do with xserver itself but
i just downloaded morphix onto a CD in the hope that the same issues
i am having would be fixed, there, and they are not.

the issue is that auto-detection of the mouse is erroneous (and i will
alert the kernel people too).

i have a serial mouse plugged into /dev/ttyS0 on a machine that has a
ps/2 socket.

on bootup, the serial mouse is not found.

whose bug is this one? :)

sincerely,

l.

I can't support this version anymore.  It is grossly out of date and
part of no released version of Debian.

Probably a bug in whatever is auto-detecting the mouse.  The X server
doesn't perform autodetection of mouse devices, just of mouse protocols.

I don't know much about morphix, so I don't know what to tell you.  If
it were a stock Debian box, I'd see what "mdetect" had to say.

Closing this misdirected report.
