    I finally got it working!
    I changed /dev/mouse to /dev/sysmouse
    and added a few more stuff.

    Now I've got more problems:
    Can't get glib libaries to link with programs.
    I've got gtk 2.4.10 installed

    checking for gnome-config... no
    checking for Gnome compile flags... gnomeui: not found
    Gnome not found, building without it.
    checking for glib-config... no
    checking for GLIB - version >= 1.2.5... no
    *** The glib-config script installed by GLIB could not be found
    *** If GLIB was installed in PREFIX, make sure PREFIX/bin is in
    *** your path, or set the GLIB_CONFIG environment variable to the
    *** full path to glib-config.
    configure: error:
    *** GLib is required to build Gaim; please make sure you have the GLib
    *** development headers installed. The latest version of GLib is
    *** always available at

    /etc/resolv.conf that has my nameservers in it keeps cleaning itself out every few minutes so i have to manually add my isp nameservers in it
    Why isn't is staying permanent

    This is for linux systems, maybe it can be
    adapted for freebsd.

    1. Add "usepeerdns" to
    2. modify the scripts
    /etc/ppp/ip-up and
    as follows

    This sample code shows you one way to modify your setup to allow automatic
    configuration of your resolv.conf for peer supplied DNS addresses when
    using the usepeerdns option.

    In my case I just added this to my /etc/ppp/ip-up.local script. You may
    need to create an executable script if one does not exist.

    You will also need to add the following to your ip-up.local and ip-down.local scripts:-

    Please add to your ip-up.local script:-

    if [ -n "$USEPEERDNS" -a -f /etc/ppp/resolv.conf ]; then
    rm -f /etc/ppp/resolv.prev
    if [ -f /etc/resolv.conf ]; then
    cp /etc/resolv.conf /etc/ppp/resolv.prev
    grep search /etc/ppp/resolv.prev > /etc/resolv.conf
    grep nameserver /etc/ppp/resolv.prev >> /etc/resolv.conf
    cat /etc/ppp/resolv.conf >> /etc/resolv.conf
    cp /etc/ppp/resolv.conf /etc
    chmod 644 /etc/resolv.conf

    Please add to your ip-up.local script to restore the original state:-
    if [ -n "$USEPEERDNS" -a -f /etc/ppp/resolv.conf ]; then
    if [ -f /etc/ppp/resolv.prev ]; then
    cp -f /etc/ppp/resolv.prev /etc/resolv.conf
    rm -f /etc/resolv.conf
    chmod 644 /etc/resolv.conf
