Debian Sarge on IBM X40 howto - Part 7: Mouse track dot

I have experienced that my mouse isn’t working after a reboot a few times. I think it happens after a system update… and this morning I was hit again. When starting X the mouse pointer wouldn’t move.

After googleing around for a while I found out that the psmouse module wasn’t loaded. I compared an lsmod output I had found on the net with my own and discovered that the above module wasn’t loaded:

modprobe psmouse

Did the trick and even without reloading X.
