Dear mailing list,

I'm running Debian inside Connectix Virtual PC 6.0.1. This software 
simulates Pentium-based hardware on a Macintosh. It lets the guest OS 
"captue" the Macintosh mouse - when the guest OS wants to use the mouse, 
the Macintosh pointer disappears and the guest OS receives mouse events. 
This is done using a virtual PS/2 device.

This functionality works with the following kernels (with relevant 
configuration options). They are stock Debian kernels.


The mouse is free until X starts up (getting mouse events from 
/dev/psaux) and is then "captured" and usable in X. But with 
2.6.0-test11, this functionality is broken. The relevant parameters in 
my .config are:


I have tried:
  1) Using /dev/input/mice and /dev/psaux in my XF86Config
  2) Passing psmouse_noext=1 to the kernel
Neither gave any success.

Please cc: me on any replies as I am not subscribed. Thank you for your 

Sean Callanan
