it is PS/2 mouse.

already using "auto", also tried "PS/2" but it does not work. see up.

> What is in the /var/log/Xorg.0.log say are there any EE lines there?

well, there are *NO* "EE" lines in "/var/log/Xorg.0.log" but i think,
i find something important there so here is some relevent/useful
information i got from there:

(**) Mouse0: Protocol: "auto"
(**) Option "CorePointer"
(**) Mouse0: Core Pointer

Could not init font path element /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/CID/,
removing from list!
FreeFontPath: FPE "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc/" refcount is 2,
should be 1; fixing.

> I'm sure you've checked some of things but can't hurt to double check.
