problem while swithing to GUI in debian linux


I tried to switch to GUI at the prompt using startx (I installed gnome) but i'm getting the following problems

1.(EE) configured Mouse: cannot open input device
(EE) preinit failed for input device "configured Mouse" no printer
Fatal server error: Failed to initialize core devices

XIo: fatal IO error 104 (Connection reset by peer) or X server "0:0" after 0 requests (0 known processors) with 0 events remaining.

Any help on this would be great to me ?

You'll need to post:




pertient areas only, please. Also, if you could tell us about the mouse it would be helpful.

I found the following Information from /var/log/XFree86.0.log as (I'm giving only errors it has shown)

(**) Option "protocol" "Imps/2"
(**) configured Mouse:Protocol:"Imps/2"
(**) Option "CorePointer"
(**) Configured Mouse: Core Poniter
(**) Option "Device" /dev/input/mice"
(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) Unload Module : "mouse"
(WW) No Core Pointer registered
Fatal server error: failed to initialize core devices

The following is the information in /etc/X11/XF86-4

Section "Input Device"
Identifier "Configured Mouse"
Driver "mouse"
option "Core Pointer"
option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
option "protocol" "Imps/2"
option "Emulate 3 buttons" "true"
option "ZAxis Mapping" "4 5"
End Section

where as i'm using Microsoft PS/2 Mouse
