Option "swcursor"

in your config file.  That should solve the problem.  If not, using the
"Create file attachment" link below, attach your XFree86 log file, and
your config file as well.  Also, a new release of XFree86 is available
with an updated savage driver for testing at:

Sorry, scratch that. You're already using the new release.. didn't notice

Comment 3 humblecelt 2001-05-04 13:52:25 UTC
What config file do you mean to add the cursor to?

Comment 4 Mike A. Harris 2001-05-15 10:45:59 UTC
Your XFree86 config file.  Which one it is depends on which version
of XFree86 you are using.  The /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 is for XFree86 4.x,
and is documented in "man XF86Config"

Does this fix the problem for you?
