as a newbie to FreeBSD, I'm stuck with the following:
I installed FreeBSD 4.1 to a 486Dx66 VLB box, that formerly ran Redhat
5.2. There, the mouse (a standard Mitsumi 3-Button type jumpered to
work as MouseSystems) worked ok both on the console and on X (XFree86
Mono, Hercules/MDA Board from my old XT w/ 2x32KB RAM [it really works
In FreeBSD however, moused fails to recognize the mouse:
moused -i all -p /dev/cuaa0 -t mousesystems
/dev/cuaa0 unknown mousesystems generic
and running moused brings no visible result, except that it is
blocking the built-in XFree86 mouse from working. When no moused is
running, the X mouse works just fine.
I also tire using vidcontrol to switch the mouse off/on, but no
result. BTW: the vidcontrol option -M char (from the manpage): what
argument 'char' is it supposed to take? I tried various, also on my
other box where moused works just fine w/ a ps/2 Dexxa Optical Mouse,
but got no visible results.
Thanks for any suggestions!
