Default Xorg & ps/2 mouse

Yup just like the title, i read much of the Netbsd documentation on that subject & go no result. Xorg don't recognize my ps/2 mouse. OpenBSD & FreeBSD didn't had this problem, so is it somekind of mal function or do someone know the actuall config to put in xorg.conf so it may work.

Last one i tried was to put:
Code:
Option "Protocol" "busmouse"
Option "Device" "/dev/pms0"
The others was protocol as IMPS/2 & wsmouse .. now i dont know what else to do.
* Note : i had some other problem on hands so i can really print a dmesg.

	Option	    "Device" "/dev/wsmouse"
Does it work?

Please tell us what Xorg -configure gives you (should adjust itself properly).

Running Xorg -configure gives me what you just output about wsmouse.. which don't work so i had to do some multiple manual change which also didn't work.

Dp you maybe have wsmous daemon started when booting or do you use synaptic driver (kernel). What about hal and dbus?

Ah, if you could copy your Xorg.log file- maybe we can find out something there?

Well i didn't though about looking at the log file , but well the log said on the mouse section:

Code:
Cannot open device /dev/pms0
          no such file or directory
And if i put the "wsmouse" settings well Xorg.0.log don't output any error but the mouse is not working.

Can't you buy just USB mouse ?

I don't know what to do Lumi. I am lost here. Do you run Generic kernel?

Hm. 5.0.1 I presume x86?

The section in xorg.conf should look like for PS/2:

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse0"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "wsmouse"
Option "Device" "/dev/wsmouse"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5 6 7"
EndSection

BTW, do you run wsmoused? Please see in /etc/rc.conf. This may cause the problems as well.

Otherwise I have any clue how to solve it. It must be somethin specific to your hardware.

BTW, why don't you buy just USB mouse? Or wireless set- that works (tested).

Piotr.

That's ok. I meant only that hal, dbus and wsmoused may crash mouse usability in some cases.

Which version of Xorg are you using?
If you install the Xsets on 5.0.1 you have 1.4.2 and if you installed the modular xorg from pkgsrc you'll have 1.6.5. The newer versions are highly dependent on a properly setup dbus and hal.

It is possible to set up the newer versions of Xorg with out hal
There is a sticky in this forum http://www.daemonforums.org/showthread.php?t=3935 that give the details

What kind of computer do you have? If it is an HP or AMD w/ASUS mb, it may be a bug -- that is it's not Xorg that isn't recognizing the mouse, but the system itself. In this bug, dmesg won't make mention of wmouse.
