Is this a problem with Dell and not Fedora?
Comment 3 Matthew Miller 2007-04-10 12:27:24 EDT
Fedora 7 test bugs should be filed against "devel", not against test1/2/3. This
isn't obvious, I know. Moving this report so it isn't lost.

This is a bulk message -- I apologize if this was actually meant to be targeted
against a different release. If so, please fix or let me know. Thanks.

I am experiencing this also.  Fedora 7 on an HP dv6000z laptop.  The pointer is
there during the graphic bootup, but is not present at the graphic login nor
when the desktop appears.  The mouse touchpad) functionality is "there" because
you can hover over the menu items and they drop down and mouse clicks are
functioning.  The visible pointer is not shown.  This problem is intermittent;
some boots the problem does not happen, some it does.  I have not experienced it
when booting into run level 3 and starting X via startx.

I am using #1 SMP Fri Dec 7 15:49:36 EST 2007 x86_64 GNU/Linux.
When i first installed the 64 bit i had the problem. I have changed the way
Fedora starts. I have changes the grub file.
#hiddenmenu and removed rhgb quiet.

nearly sure this is nv specific..
Comment 10 Matěj Cepl 2008-01-21 07:48:53 EST
Right you are, Dave -- this is IMHO one of the most duplicated bugs in the RH
Xorg universe.
