I'll take a look at /dev/psaux etc. later.
No, I didn't break my system. As mentioned before, for Debian stable,
Debian testing, Ubuntu Maverick and Ubuntu Natty the mouse wheel doesn't
work for the clean installs.
How should I break mouse wheel support, when I break ALSA? I try to get
rid of Debian's outdated version, because I need the current version.
FWIW I'm making backups before I do such editing, anyway, even if I
should have broken everything now, the mouse wheel never worked before.
PS: I'll take a look at Microsoft mice too. But if possible I would
prefer not to support Microsoft and Apple.
