xfree86 and mouse probs


I boot to cli and when i #startx I always get paraphrased
cant find /dev/psaux
failed config mouse
no /dev/input/mice
no core pointer
thats not exact but close.....then I #startx again and it starts normal...the message isnt in my logs I think because it gets over written (sp) when I startx again and it starts correct like....so can I mkdir /dev/psaux...then copy a /dev/mouse into that dir
and expect that to stop the errors?? or am I in outer space??
/dev/input/mice does exist btw

The first thing to find out is what type of rodent
you actually have to be able to make a well-
informed suggestion...

As for the log - you could copy it to a safe place
before running startx again? ;)


Cheers,
Tink

Wild guess - try to load the mouse-module before starting
X ... ?
