CRUX Mouse not detected.


I recently installed CRUX linux on my IBM server.

The problem is my ps/2 mouse does not work and there is no /dev/mouse or anything relating to my mouse. I have tried putting /dev/tty0 into XFree86Config but different ttyXX will freeze X.

How do I figure out which tty the mouse is on? How do I know if the ps/2 port is even configured?

Any help appreciated.

If I have no psaux in /dev/ or /dev/ input, does that mean that the ps/2 port is not installed/configured?
