I have problem with mouse on FreeSBIE, actually no mouse at all... sysinstall says, you are not root user, so go away.. Is it so hard to detect mouse these days automatically? Works fine on every other FreeBSD distribution- PC-BSD and DesktopBSD.

"sysinstall says, you are not root user, so go away.. "

Did you login as root or use the standard autologin user? I don't know if this user is UID 0. To be sure, use su. Should not be a problem then.

% su -
...
# /stand/sysinstall

Otherwise, try the "old fashioned" method to test:

# moused -d -f -p /dev/cuaa0 -t auto

Use /dev/psm0 for a PS/2 mouse or /dev/ums0 for an USB mouse. Be sure to specify the correct mouse type (see man moused for a list). By the way, USB mice should be autodetected and automatically setup via usbd.

"Works fine on every other FreeBSD distribution- PC-BSD and DesktopBSD."

Really strange... diffed the /etc/rc.confs?
