Is this a problem with Dell and not Fedora?
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 up to date Fedora Test 4 32 bit.
