Its not under busmouse. There's an option for adb support under the apple-specific section of the kernel config (can't remember exactly, don't have a ppc machine to hand) and it should then be accesible via /dev/mouse or /dev/input/mice

I checked the kernel and it is compiled with adb drivers
I think it is my xorg config that is iffy
I have configured xfree on this machine before but do not remember how
I set the key board to 105 int key (I have the orignal that came with the beige) and I set the mouse auto/ps2/busmice and all fail however when i set it for busmouse it asks me for what it is attached to
I tried /dev/keyboard /dev/keyboard0 dev/keyboard1
This obviously failed
I presume this is where the problem is
thanks
