Subject:   My USB mouse not working in FreeBSD 5.1

I am very new to FreeBSD, but I'm trying to learn how to use it. This is =
made very difficult by not having a mouse.

I have tried searching on Google for a few hours, but haven't fixed the =
problem yet. Anyway, here it is:

My mouse is a "Logitech Cordless Desktop iTouch" optical USB mouse.

/dev/ums0 does exist.

If I try to set up the mouse deamon in /stand/sysinstall the cursor will =
not move when set to Auto (or any other protocol).

If I do "moused -p /dev/ums0" I get "moused: unable to open /dev/ums0: =
Device busy".

dmesg finds everything alright:
ums0: Logitech USB Receiver, rev 1.10/13.10, addr 2, iclass 3/1
ums0: 5 buttons and Z dir.

When I try to use X everything is OK, but I just can't mouse the cursor.

That is all the information that I think might be useful, sorry if I =
left something obvious out, but I have only been unsing FreeBSD for 3 =
days; if I have, just tell me what (and
how to get the information).
