This, of course, is for version 3.3.6 server, which I was running
up until a few minutes ago :-)
For ver 4.1, the cfg syntax is different. in xf86cfg, select
wsmouse, 3 buttons, and emulation of 3 buttons (for 2 button Logitech
trackballs). This generates a ver 4.1 config file section of:
Option "Protocol" "wsmouse"
Option "Device" "/dev/wsmouse"
Sorry for any confusion.
I verified -- if you blithely select a PS2 mouse, you are doomed,
and will get "very crazy" mouse performance. This is due to interference
with the wsconsole code, no doubt. If you tell it wsmouse, happiness is thine.
