my mouse is dead

My mouse is dead following a fresh install of free bsd. Where do i start? I have tried making changes in xconfig through sysinstall but no luck. ive changed port settings dev type and tried the mouse dameon on and off. no action. When running linux on that same box the mouse is fine and it used to work on freebsd before my reinstall.
Id really appreciate some help with this.

Hate to say this, but this is the wrong forum for this question. You should be in the freebsd section of this site.

I posted here as it is more commolnly browsed. If you noticed posts remain unread in the bsd forum here for weeks as most bsd people use . Im not sure why people believe that SuSE and RedHat are more similar than FreeBSD and Debian. I mean SuSE is ALOT like mac and RedHat is in its own little "lets move everything" world. Besides X is X.
dont hate
