Re: Mouse problems
:I just installed DragonFly-Stable from 20041009, and finally after some
:trouble I managed to install it. The trouble was with the CD-rom.. I have
:two CD-rom drives, the slave is a CDRW, pretty new thing, the master is a
:normal CD drive. The error I get is: "cd0: Attempt to query device size
:failed: NOT READY, Medium not present". Any ideas on this?
This just means that there is no CD in the drive. It's harmless.
:Anyway, the problem is that I can't get my mouse to work. I installed
:XFree86 and used xf86config to configure the mouse. I used to run NetBSD on
:this box and the mouse worked fine over there so I figured it'd be fine.
:However the mouse is the only thing that doesn't work, the rest works fine.
:I set the mouse device to point to /dev/sysmouse and tried several mouse
:protocols (it's a simple Logitech PS/2 mouse with scrolling wheel), but
:nothing would work. Am I missing something here or is there something wrong
/dev/sysmouse is used by moused. If you are not running moused then
/dev/sysmouse will not do anything.
I recommend simply configuring X to use /dev/psm0 directly (which is
the PS/2 mouse device). Then it should work.
