Description psj 1999-01-28 06:51:56 EST
With the new (2.2) stable kernels, /dev/cua* become obsolete
(see Documentation/Changes).  mouseconfig-3.1.3-1 links
/dev/mouse to the relevant /dev/cua* serial device.  In line
with new kernel guidelines this should instead link to the
generic serial device /dev/ttyS*.  This fix is backwardly
functional on 2.0 kernels on which I have tested it.

(patch will follow when I recieve bug id#)
