Description seifried 2000-10-04 06:25:26 UTC
Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer, USB model. System is a dual celeron 533 on an Abit BP6, 256 ram, etc. Win98/Linux dualboot. Under Win98 it works great. While running Red Hat 6.9.5 it worked fine for a few weeks, until mysteriously one reboot the mouse cursor "disapeered". In console the cursor shows up with gpm, can cut and paste/etc fine. In X no mouse cursor, you could move the mouse and click on things fine, but without a cursor this was difficult to say the least. Reinstall Red Hat 6.9.5, it came back, so I thought "ah, a bug in the Beta, I'm sure it's been reported". Apperently not. I have installed Red Hat 7.0 3 times now (via ftp from my internal server), everything works, including the mouse in console, but no mouse cursor under X. No mouse cursor under X during install either (i.e. to select "Can you read this Yes/No"). Thanks in advance. P.S. nice job on shipping tripwire with the system, it's appreciated.

I have confirmation from a friend using this mouse that it works in our latest release with no trouble. It worked in 7.0 for him as well though, so it may be that your mouse was just misconfigured. You might want to read the mouse manpage: man -a mouse Try the various listed drivers until you find one that works.
