I too have used FreeBSD 2.x, NetBSD, Linux, Windows (9x, NT), OS/2, etc.
None of these operating systems had a problem. I thought the ps/2 mouse
was one of the best known interfaces around. The only issue I remember
with FreeBSD 2.x was that psm was not in the generic kernel(or was that
Yes, I do have psm0 in the config file, and I did do a "make depend"
Anyway, trust me, I'm sure it is something strange with this machine.
The odd thing is I have had, on this very machine, Linux, Windows, and
NT with no mouse issues. I have the hard disk on a slide, so I shut it
down, removed the FreeBSD boot drive, and replaced it with the Linux
boot drive, and the mouse came up working.
It is a powerspec Cyrix MediaGX 200 Mhz. It is just one of those
troubling things. I had to hand configure the XF86_SVGA driver, to deal
with the stupid MediaGX video. (XFree335 seems to handle this device
better than 333)
