ums -- USB mouse driver


To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following lines in your kernel configuration file: device ums device uhci device ohci device usb Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the following line in loader.conf(5): ums_load="YES"


The ums driver provides support for mice that attach to the USB port. Supported are mice with any number of buttons and mice with a wheel. The /dev/ums0 device presents the mouse as a sysmouse or mousesystems type device. See moused(8) for an explanation of these mouse types.
