/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.)
