This sounds a little confused. I believe the current situation
is that you can either:
1) use pms*, wsmouse* at pms?, and tell X to use
/dev/wsmouse0 with protocol wsmouse (this is what I'm using, and it
2) use opms*, and tell X to use /dev/pms0 with protocol BusMouse (the
compatibility mode for old X servers).
I don't think opms and wsmouse are intended to work together
