With kernel 2.4.x, xorg.conf should have something like: ============== Section "InputDevice" Identifier "Mouse0" Driver "mouse" Option "Protocol" "MouseSystems" Option "Device" "/dev/sunmouse" Option "Emulate3Buttons" "false" EndSection ============== With kernel 2.6.x, this: ============= Section "InputDevice" Identifier "Mouse0" Driver "mouse" Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2" Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice" Option "Emulate3Buttons" "false" EndSection ============== At least, those're what I'm using on my systems. Beyond that, I don't know. What does Xorg.0.log say about your mouse? And what does "jumps all over the place" mean? And what does your xorg.conf (Or XFree...) say about your mouse?
