Hello:
       I have this problem. I have an old computer (celeron 400 48 mb ram). And i install VL Standar 5.8 Gold edition. But i can use the mouse.
 I install just the "requier" pakages. When i use VASM and put a serial mouse it said this. "mport not found" and nothing happend.
I search in gslapt the Mport but i dont found anything.

Whats wrong?

See ya.. Cabu

I really would suggest against trying to run SOHO on a machine with only 48MB of RAM. You should use VL Light for such a machine. SOHO will be incredibly slow, always using your swap and in fact, may not even work at all.

About you serial mouse problem you need to edit the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file and change this stanza:

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier  "Mouse0"
Driver      "mouse"
Option      "Protocol" "microsoft"
Option      "Device" "/dev/ttyS0"
EndSection
