/dev/mouse is already linked to /dev/fb0.
ls -al /dev/mouse
lrwx------ 1 root wheel 3 Feb 27 19:53 /dev/mouse -> fb0
I saw mention of this problem in the list archives, but no sign of a
solution. It sounds like the problem is specific to the 3100 from what I
can gather. Anyone come up with a fix yet?
(P.S. I added an .xinitrc file to my home directory based on the man page
for xinit. Now that twm is running the xterm does have a window border.
Still no mouse though.)
