    SubjectRe: /dev/psaux problem (2.6.5)
    It's not a problem of mousedev, but the problem of make menuconfig.

    The relevant part of .config is

    #
    # Userland interfaces
    #
    CONFIG_INPUT_MOUSEDEV=y
    CONFIG_INPUT_MOUSEDEV_PSAUX=y
    CONFIG_INPUT_MOUSEDEV_SCREEN_X=1024
    CONFIG_INPUT_MOUSEDEV_SCREEN_Y=768
    # CONFIG_INPUT_JOYDEV is not set
    # CONFIG_INPUT_TSDEV is not set
    # CONFIG_INPUT_EVDEV is not set
    # CONFIG_INPUT_EVBUG is not set

    Starting from original linux-2.6.5.tar.gz it seems impossible to
    disable CONFIG_INPUT_MOUSEDEV_PSAUX without disabling CONFIG_INPUT_MOUSEDEV.

    If I comment out the line CONFIG_INPUT_MOUSEDEV_PSAUX by hand, make
    silently restore this line to yes.

    Regards,
    E.R.
