recent dist-upgrade of xorg has killed my mouse (and thusly, xorg).
So i run apt-get update, apt-get upgrade, and it gets the new stuff for most of the programs, but some are held back. I use apt-get dist-upgrade figuring it's some kind of dependency thing. Sure enough it says it's going to replace a bunch of packages with others. I select Yes and it does its thing. I reboot my computer even though it's not required, just to make sure that if a problem comes up i'd know about it right away. Lucky me.
It reboots and tries to start X and can't. I wait a moment for the bug report to come up and it says that it can't detect /dev/psaux. I, finding this very odd, check the directory and the device is there. I tried setting it to 0666 readable and rebooting, but that didn't work (so i put it back to the 0600 it was at before). I don't seem to have any other kinds of mose devices in the directory that i recognize, and I can't seem to find (or remember) whatever script it is that's supposed to walk you through the xorg configuration process. I'm stuck, I've not idea what to do or where to start at this point. Any help would be appreciated.
