Description of problem:
I usually build my servers in VMware and don't have a problem. I
started migrating from Red Hat 9 to Fedora Core 1 (fresh OS install).
Everything works fine until applying the 40-some updates from up2date.
In one VM, the mouse went wild and started wildly clicking thinks by
just touching it. This was fixed by reselecting PS/2 mouse from system
In a 2nd VM, I started having the same problem after running up2date
and applied the same fix. I then rebooted the environment and now X
server crashes before graphic login with a "no screens found". I try
re-running "redhat-config-xfree86 --reconfig -v" but no dice as it
just comes back with "xconf.py Fatal IO error 2 (Connection reset by
peer) on X server :17.0."
I don't remember Xfree86 in the list of up2date patches. Thoughts?
