I have installed FreeBSD 6.1, latest patches, xorg on a Dell OptiPlex GX280 w/USB keyboard and mouse. When xorg is started, the PC locks up requiring a power off/on. Checking xorg.0.log shows that the 'Input Device' is not recognized by xorg. Device setting for 'Input Device' in xorg.conf is '/dev/sysmouse'. Changing this setting to '/dev/ums0' does not help. The mouse is recognized by FreeBSD as the dmesg shows 'ums0'. The mouse does work at the console.

Any more info needed let me know.

Can you paste your entire InputDevice section? This is what I use for mine:

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse0"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "auto"
Option "Device" "/dev/sysmouse"
Option "Buttons" "5"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

Also, make sure you don't have a ton of mouse configs in your /etc/rc.conf, and that 'usbd_enable="YES"' is set in there as well.
