I am new to NetBSD 1.5.2 and had the same problems trying to run the Xserver
(4.2.0). I crashed the server by moving the mouse. I have an intellimouse and
being it a PS/2 type, I tried the PS/2 protocol. No luck. Finally I read the X
chapter of the "NetBSD operating system:a short guide"
and found out that with the new virtual console (wscons) in 1.4 and newer,
better use the wsmouse protocol with the wsmouse device (dev/wsmouse0). Have
you tried it?
Hope this helps.
