X configuration problems
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:56 EDT
When setting the resolution during the X confuguration, if you select a
resolution and then test that setting, occasionally upon return from the
test, the mouse cursor will get stuck in the upper right corner of the
screen. If you continue navigating with the keyboard and test the screen
resolution again, it will hang in a loop of testing and retesting the
resolution. Selecting yes, no or waiting for the 10 second time out all
produce the same outcome of a retest.
The machine is a PIII-500, Diamond Speedstar A50 using the Mach 64 driver
The real problem here is (IMHO) that the installer detected and uses an ps/2
mouse and later on the user selects imps/2 or an other wheelmouse protocol, the
X-test is done with this protocol, and afterwards the mouse is still in this
mode, this confuses X hence the mouse doesn't work anymore.
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Winston Beta-5
This defect has been re-classified as MUST-FIX for Winston Gold-release
Fixed for beta 5 - needs to be tested.
-did a custom install
-selected imps/2 as mousetype (installer detected 3 button ps2 mouse)
-mouse still worked fine after testing
