Ah. Well. There is that. Have you tried running 'xorgsetup' to rebuild your xorg.conf? That might get your X going again with a mouse even if some other settings were not quite right.

In addition to /proc/bus/input/devices you can also check to see if psmouse is loaded:

Code:
modprobe -l psmouse

My well of suggestions is close to drying up. You might try restarting gpm to see if the mouse will come up in console. That would at least isolate the problem to X or not.
Code:
/etc/rc.d/rc.gpm restart
For X you might try protocol "auto" in addition to the other ones you've tried. And finally if you're on slackware-current you might take a look at '/etc/modprobe.d/psmouse'. This is where you put the boot protocol options for psmouse.

Of course, were I paying attention I would see that you're not on slackware-current but on 12.0. Did you upgrade your X server from what the default is in 12.0?

There are so many possibilities it's not funny. First of all, you need to learn to use links or lynx so you can post your xorg.conf (or, alternatively, learn some keyboard shortcuts so you can do it through X). It's incredibly difficult to "guess" the problem when it could be a really bad xorg.conf. Second, you built this Xorg yourself. Xorg is a huge set of programs, and it's entirely possible that you messed something up. Out of curiosity, WHY did you need to update Xorg so badly? If you really wanted a newer X than provided in 12.0, you could always try -current.

I realize my tone is not so nice, but after reading...
