help me start X?


as you probably guessed from the title, X isn't working...i had tthis problem ages ago, but fixed it by running xorgconfig but now, after i just installed debian...x doesnt work, and there is no xorgconfig... >.< im guessing its something invloving my mouse lol



heres the log file...

heres the config file...

Code:
(EE) xf86OpenSerial: Cannot open device /dev/input/mice
	No such device.
(EE) Configured Mouse: cannot open input device
(EE) PreInit failed for input device "Configured Mouse"
(II) UnloadModule: "mouse"
(WW) No core pointer registered
No core pointer

Fatal server error:
failed to initialize core devices
there is a file called "mice" in /dev/input....so i dunno...its a microsoft PS/2 mouse btw...debian...2.4 kernel...

I think the command to configure xserver for debian is

#dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86

Tux,

Hi,

Identifier and driver

Identifier "Mouse1"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "ImPS/2"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"

This is part of my config : you should use "dev/psaux" , /dev/input is for usb mice.

cheers
