Angry Wireless kbd and mouse

Hi Guys,

I have a wireless kbd and mouse they share the same reciever. But they both have different IDīs and frequencies. Could adjust them to have the same. I have installed the new xf86-4.4.0 and have changed the XF86 config to read imps/2 for protocol and change the location of the driver to be /dev/input/mice from /dev/mouse.

With the console before i startx everthing works fine but the start up check tells me it cannot find mouse and of course when i startx it fails to initialize core pointer device.

I need some real help here...

i have no idea how to handle both devices (I have wireless mouse which was working out of the box), but you can start your X also without mouse by using

Option         "AllowMouseOpenFail"  "true"
in XF86Config or Xorg.conf ... just put it in "Server Layout"
