Dear folks,

I have updated pkgsrc and it still wanted to install firefox 19.0.2
and then it said that there were vulnerablities, I just added it with
pkg, I logged out and logged back in and machine rebooted, did not
know what triggered this.

At login screen I see:

Starting moused:moused: unable to open /dev/psm0:  No such file or directory

It is a usb mouse and I can try to see which device it is using dmesg,
and then uncomment it from /etc/rc.conf ?
Device is uhid0 by virtue of unplugging and replugging it in.

uhid0: detached
uhid0: <Microsoft Microsoft Optical Mouse with Tilt Wheel, class 0/0,
rev 2.00/1.20, addr 2> on uhub6

Best Regards,
