Re: Problem with 'core pointer' (Xorg)

I believe /dev/sysmouse is created by moused, it will only exist if
you're running it.

If you have no use for moused, just put /dev/ums0 (USB) or /dev/psm0
(PS/2) in your xorg config. If you want console mousing (moused never
seemed to be as useful as gpm to me, but I'll bet it is if you set it up
right), just add these to rc.conf:

moused_port="/dev/psm0" # or /dev/ums0
moused_type="auto" # may need to specify if ps/2, not sure

'vga' doesn't support much. What kind of card is it? There aren't many
cards that are totally unsupported by x.org ... although most are
partially unsupported (insert rant about closed specs here).

Failing that, you might be able to use "vesa" instead of "vga", which
will should you a 24-bit display.

I inserted /dev/sysmouse and startx works (with depth
8 in xorg.conf), but I am not able to move pointer on
the screen.
In fact, fluxbox appears very big in the screen and I
cannnot move pointer of mouse.

I try startx with depth 16 in xorg.conf, but it
appears that my driver ('vga') don't support that
