The link "/dev/mouse" points to /dev/psaux. I removed the link
with the rm command. and it reappears. I tried "gpm stop" as
well beforehand but it's in daemon mode and gpm hangs instead of dying

I need to be able to :

ln-s /dev/inputmice /dev/mouse

I couldn't go to init 1 either it just hangs. Devfs is where my problems lie
I speculate. With not being able to change the symlink and init 1 maybe?
Any help would be welcome as this is frustrating.

Do I have to use useradd with all those switches or is there an easier script that is intereactive for adding users?

There is something about that in the docs. If i remeber I had the sme problem and had to link /dev/psaux to /dev/ttyS01 and it didnt change like /dev/mouse does.

check /etc/devsd.conf:
# Create /dev/mouse
LOOKUP ^mouse$ CFUNCTION GLOBAL mksymlink misc/psaux mouse
REGISTER ^misc/psaux$ CFUNCTION GLOBAL mksymlink $devname mouse
UNREGISTER ^misc/psaux$ CFUNCTION GLOBAL unlink mouse
Maybe that is what you need. I am no expert, though
