Hi everyone. Don suggested I ask this here as there has been a discussion on
this recently. Could someone fill me in on the bottom line?
Hi. A question for you freebsd users out there. I've installed freebsd on my
thinkpad 360C. I've gotten the keyboard working fine with the following config

device          vt0     at isa? port "IO_KBD" tty irq 1 vector pcrint
options         "PCVT_FREEBSD=210"      # pcvt running on FreeBSD 2.1
options         "PCVT_SCANSET=2"

The problem is that my trackpoint mouse is never recognized. I have the
following line in the kernel config file:

device          psm0    at isa? port "IO_KBD" conflicts tty irq 12 vector psmint

The psm0 device is probed and it is claimed that "psm0: not found at 0x60".
Probing it manually (at boot -c) returns 0.

It has been suggested that I hack the mouse driver to assume the existence of
the mouse regardless of the probe result. Is this the best solution?

Any help would be very much appreciated. - Thanks.
