I get the same messages at the same times. The things I've tried:
1. Enabled PS/2 mouse in setup on my Tyan Tomcat III motherboard.
2. Mouse works in DOS and Windows95 (Logitech mouse).
3. Recompiled 2.0.25 kernel to include PS/2 mouse.
4. Ran gpm with option -t ps2.
5. Recompiled kernel again with modification to psaux.c to turn on
6. Reset all links and issued new mknod's. Using /dev/psaux.
7. Tried two different PS/2 mice (Logitech and Kensington). BTW,
the Kensington mouse does not work in DOS.
8. Read the Busmouse-HOWTO about a dozen times.
Looking for hints.
